Officers are investigating an incident at a Swindon pub and would like the public’s help in identifying four individuals.

At approximately 8.30pm on 10 March, four males entered the Crumpled Horn pub at the Eldene centre and ran around the venue, with two of the group believed to be brandishing machetes.

Nobody was injured but police officers are keen to speak to the males pictured above, in connection with the incident.

The first male is described as wearing a half toned dark coloured bomber jacket, dark jeans, light coloured shoes, with a balaclava on and wearing gloves.

The second male was wearing a black windbreaker coat, dark trousers, dark shoes with white laces and a black balaclava. Both of these two men were carrying machetes.

The third male was wearing a dark puffer jacket, dark trousers, gloves, black shoes and a balaclava with a reflective logo.

The fourth male was wearing a grey coloured puffer jacket, black joggers with a white line down the side and dark trainers. He was carrying a backpack.

The males ran away down the cycle path towards Shaftesbury Lake following the incident.

A spokesperson from Swindon Police said: "Were you in the area at the time and recall seeing four males matching these descriptions?

"Do you recognise the clothing described?"

Anyone with information is being asked to call 101 and quote crime reference number 54230026367.

Alternatively, members of the public can call CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
