Police are appealing for witnesses to an aggravated burglary at a house in Harlow.
Two men with a large black dog forced their way into the property in Fold Croft at 6.50pm on Thursday April 7. They rang the doorbell and pushed the occupant out of the way when he answered, causing him to fall back onto the stairs.
The men stole cash and electrical items before making off towards the golf course.
The men are both described as white with large builds and wore scarves across their faces. One of the men spoke with a foreign accent and the other wore a hooded top, with the hood up.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Dc Ann-Marie Pitcher at Harlow CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
