Officers are hoping to identify two men who may be able to assist their enquiries into an assault and attempted burglary in Newport
We received a report of an attempted burglary and assault in West Park Road, Newport at around 11am on Tuesday 15 June.
Two men reportedly got out of a silver coloured Mercedes car, which was driven by a third man.
One of the men entered the house and spoke to the victim inside, before leaving and allegedly assaulting the victim outside of his property.
The two men then ran in the direction of Bassaleg Road, while a third man drove away from the address.
The victim returned to his home and found that a bag had been emptied of its contents, although no items were taken.
The first man is described in his 30s and of slim build. He was wearing cream trousers, long sleeved white shirt and a black peaked cap.
The second man is also believed to be in his 30s and of slim build. He was wearing faded blue jeans, long sleeved white shirt, and a black peaked cap with white logo. He also put on a dark coloured jacket.
Enquiries are ongoing and officers are hoping to speak to these two men, who were seen in the area at the time and may be able to assist officers with their investigation.
