Group armed with knife storm into Nottinghamshire house

Detectives investigating an aggravated burglary where a man was assaulted have charged a suspect.

A group armed with a knife stormed into a house in Welbeck Road, Ordsall, Retford, and started carrying out a search.

The property was then turned over and the man was assaulted, causing minor injuries.

Electrical items, bank cards, a set of car keys, a purse, and cash were all taken during the incident at around 5pm on Sunday (21 August 2022).

The stolen bank cards were then used to make two transactions an hour later.

Daniel Rylance, 38, has since been charged with aggravated burglary and two counts of fraud.

Rylance, of New Rossington, Doncaster, appeared before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday (26 August), where he was remanded in custody.

He is next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 23 September 2022.

Detective Sergeant Richard Kinsey, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The force treats all reports of burglary and violence extremely seriously and are committed to rooting out the causes of these crimes.

“A person’s home is somewhere they should always feel safe, which is why we carry out so much proactive work to take this kind of criminality away from our communities.

“Following some good work by our officers, we have now charged a suspect in connection with this incident, which was understandably very distressing for the victim.

“Our inquiries are still very much ongoing however, so we’d urge anyone who knows what happened, or has any other information that could assist our investigation to get in touch straight away.

“Information can be left, either by calling the police on 101, quoting incident 740 of 21 August 2022, or by leaving an anonymous message with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
