Reward of £10,000 offered after masked men raid Gloucestershire business

Police are appealing for information after a man was attacked by four masked men at an Over Causeway business over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Gloucestershire Constabulary were called to UK Glass Eels on Friday evening after receiving reports of an aggravated burglary.

They reported that four masked offenders entered the building occupied by the Eel fishery before threatening a member of staff and then striking him with a piece of wood.

The burglars then carried out a search of the premises before leaving. The police have not disclosed, as yet, what was taken.

But in a statement released by the police today, UK Glass Eels owner Peter Wood has offered a £10,000 reward for a successful conviction against the raiders.

Mr Wood said: "UK Glass Eels is offering a reward of £10,000 for information concerning an aggravated burglary of the fishermen's payroll at the company's business premises at Over, Gloucester.

"The reward is for information which leads to the successful conviction of the offender(s) linked to Police incident 453 of May 3, 2019.

"For clarity the reward is for a successful conviction rather than arrest or charges. Any information should be passed to the police on 101."

A man was left with rib injuries after the attack and was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital for treatment.

Any information can be submitted by calling 101, online here or, anonymously, by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
