Coton hammer attack robbery probe leads to new arrest
An arrest has been made in connection with a violent attack on an elderly Cambridgeshire couple in their home.
A gang of four men subjected the couple, in their 70s, to a four-hour ordeal in Coton last November.
The woman was struck with a hammer, and the man was repeatedly pricked with a brooch pin, police said, before the gang made off with valuable antiques.
A 28-year-old man from Cambridge is being questioned.
Three men previously arrested over the attack - a 33-year-old from Peterborough, a 35 year-old from Merton, and a 42 year-old from Cambridge - were interviewed again by officers earlier and released on bail.
The incident took place in Madingley Road between 22:00 GMT and 02:20 on 29 November.
The woman's toe was broken after it was hit with a hammer and she also had a black eye, police said.
The offenders wore white boiler suits and balaclavas.
Items taken included a pair of jade storks and what police described as a "solid silver Aztec artefact".
Det Insp Alan Page, from Cambridgeshire Police, said: "It was a vicious and calculated attack that left its victims in fear for their lives."
There is a £5,000 reward for information which identifies the offenders and leads to a successful conviction.
