A man struggled to defend himself after three masked intruders - one wielding a crow bar- broke into his home on Friday night.
The victim, in his 30s, was at home in Whittlesey Road, March, when the raid happened.
A police spokesman said: “The victim managed to push away the offender who was attempting to hit him with the crow bar while the two friends ran out of the property.
“The offenders made off with about £400 cash and smashed the victim’s phone. They are all described as white and one was wearing a camouflage jacket.”
The robbery happened between 8.30pm and 8.45pm and the offenders made off with around £400 – they smashed the victim’s phone before leaving. All three attackers wore balaclavas.
Anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
