Students warned after Brynmill home invasion


A BRYNMILL man was the victim of a home invasion in a possible case of mistaken identify.

After answering the door to a man claiming to be looking for a missing child, the 20-year-old man was assaulted and a gang of six men entered the property on Bryn Road, stealing cash and laptops.

Four suspect descriptions have been issued and the police are appealing for information.

One suspect is male, white, aged 23-24, 5ft 10ins in height, of medium build with stubble on his face and was wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.

The second suspect is male, black, 6ft 2ins in height, wearing a black jacket.

Another man wanted is of mixed race, aged in his 20s, of fat and stocky build with a thick half-inch beard below the chin, wearing a jumper. He spoke with a Caribbean accent.

And the final profile is that of a male, white, aged early 20s, who spoke with a local accent and wore a blue tracksuit.

Detective Inspector Darren George of Swansea CID said: “We believe that the victim has been mistakenly targeted and the suspects have attended the wrong address.

“It is clear they were looking for drugs or cash and have made off with property from the address including computer equipment and clothing.”

Around six men were seen running away from the scene along Bryn Road in the direction of Brynmill Lane.

Any witnesses or anyone with information about the incident should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Students living in the area are being warned to report any suspicious callers on 101 or in an emergency, 999.
