Burglars threaten to stab mum in the eye, while she is cradling 7 week old baby

First published in Echo News Exclusive by , Reporter

THUGS threatened to stab a woman in the eye while she was cradling her sevenweek- old baby during a terrifying robbery.

Her boyfriend, 25, needed hospital treatment after he was repeatedly beaten by a masked man who demanded he hand over an unknown package and cash.

The terrified couple believe they were the victims of mistaken identity after the incident at their home in Goldings Crescent, Basildon, on Saturday evening.

They are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

The couple, who are too scared to be named, were watching TV in their groundfloor flat at about 7pm when there was a knock at the door.

The male victim got up to answer the door, but as he undid the latch, it was forced open by two men.

One man, whose face was covered by a scarf, began beating him while another man, whose face was not covered, threatened him with a knife.

The victim said: “They started punching and kicking me and put a knife to my throat. They were screaming and swearing at me, asking for a parcel.

“I tried to tell them I didn’t know what they were talking about. I just said to them: ‘Please don’t hurt my missus or my baby’.”

The knifeman then went into the living room where he threatened the mum as she cradled her newborn baby.

The woman, 33, said: “I was sat on the sofa and he put the knife to my eye and said ‘give me what I want’.

“I said, ‘we have not got anything,’ but he said ‘why are you lying?’”

They took the man’s Blackberry mobile phone and his girlfriend’s Samsung Galaxy.

She said: “At first, he took my old mobile phone which has pictures of my daughter when she was first born.

“I asked him to give it back, but he threw it on the sofa next to me.

“The one with his face covered, who seemed to be the ringleader, said to him: ‘Don’t harm the missus or the baby, that’s not what we are here for.’”

The raiders searched the couple’s kitchen cupboards, but left behind their games consoles.

They took £105 cash – their benefits money for the fortnight.

The man added: “We think this is drugs related and that this was a case of mistaken identity.

“They kept asking us for a package, but we have no idea what that means.

“Is it a package of drugs?

We just don’t understand. We are not involved in anything like that.”

The first suspect was aged between 20 and 25 and was wearing a black balaclava, black trainers and black clothing.

The second was aged between 35 and 40 and was wearing a black jacket, grey T-shirt and jeans.

Anybody with any information is asked to contact Det Con Stephen Cross at Basildon CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers,

In a recent report, this paper found it necessary to state the ethnicity of a man (White) that had already been arrested for an alleged misdemeanor. Although the racial identity of these two scumbags is of no relevance to the crime committed, it would be useful considering the police are appealing for information / witnesses.

@louts 'troll' ? Ironic as I don't believe you a real person / fake account as all you appear to do is pop up every once in a while and have a dig at me, I would take you little more seriously if you occasionally commented on other matters.

No, I suspect this could be genuine case of mistaken identity, but lie detectors are the way to go. I'm a huge advocate that it should be standard with all statements. This would assist the police greatly. Most coppers will confirm that people are rarely entirely honest when reporting crimes. The technology is there, lets use it.

I think you have been watching to much Jeremy Kyle "Also lie detectors dont work in cases of violence, mental health problems, drugs (prescription or recreational) "

Detective Chief Inspector Glen Channer, head of Hertfordshire police’s child protection unit, said lie detectors were a welcome addition to the force’s “armory of investigative techniques”.

He said the devices gave police better insight into the risks posed by offenders, enabling officers to prioritise certain cases over others to improve efficiency.

Where I work is irrelevant, although it would appear I have a substantially stronger understanding of the subject than yourself.

This has been proposed for quite some time and is to be rolled out to other forces over the next few years, however I believe they should be used not only when deciding to charge someone but when deciding how much time and resources to put into an investigation. The Detective Chief Inspector would appear to agree with me, or does he live with me in cloud cuckoo land?
If you knew anywhere near as much about the police as you suggest, you would understand that they are massively under resourced and any assistance will lead to a reduction in crime and increase in prosecutions.

Using a lie detector test to assess the risk posed by an offender is not the same as testing people reporting crimes, you are using comments completely out of context to back up your bizarre claims. There is absolutely no need to even consider testing people reporting crimes, it has never been an issue, false claims are few & far between.

I simply c&p'd the comment and provided a link to the source, don't understand how I have taken it out of context ?
One of the reasons I want this excellent idea implemented as 'standard' is because people will understand this is a normal part of reporting a crime and not that their claims are being treated suspiciously.

Once again.... Lie detectors are inherently inaccurate hence the reason they are inadmissible in court and not used by the UK police. They are easily fooled with 10 minutes prior education on the Internet and as such, any potential motive gained from a lie detector would not be usable for securing a warrant for gaining a conviction.

No, I suspect this could be genuine case of mistaken identity, but lie detectors are the way to go. I'm a huge advocate that it should be standard with all statements. This would assist the police greatly. Most coppers will confirm that people are rarely entirely honest when reporting crimes. The technology is there, lets use it.
You think too much of yourself. I comment on many articles, most of which you, unfortunately also happen to be on, albeit you troll, I comment.

I am not a fake account, but if youprefer to think that, so be it, I will not be losing any sleep that you think that way.

Lie detectors are not admissable in courts of law in the UK, they are prone to error.

Google really is your friend Max, I suggest you use it before commenting.
Of course you comment on lots of stories 'Lotus'....Regardles



s have you actually read the discussion ? or just you trolling as usual ?

Where have I (or anyone including the Chief Inspector ! ) mentioned anything about using the technology in court ? The discussion is about freeing up more police time by "enabling officers to prioritise certain cases over others to improve efficiency." do you understand this ?
Well if it is not intended to be used in court, what's the bloody point in wasting time using lie detectors in the first place.

btw "Lotus" is not my real name, any more than "SuperMadMax" is yours.

They are known as screennames, got it? Yes? Good. Perhaps not.
""enabling officers to prioritise certain cases over others to improve efficiency."

Lotus - Its clear to me that you are trolling and have no interest in commenting on the story nor contributing to the discussion. Echo needs to introduce a system where that only allow one person per ip address or make people sign up by social media which will help cut out behaviour like yours.
I am commenting, not trolling. I am commenting on your silly idea regarding lie detectors. Get over it.

I only have one account on here, Echo knows that, what on earth are you on you silly little man.
