A WOMAN was assaulted by two men who broke into her home in Bridport, police said.

The pair made off with jewellery and clothing following the break-in.

The 45-year-old victim suffered soreness to her face in the incident which happened in West Street on Tuesday afternoon.

Detective Constable Gavin Roy said: "This is a particularly nasty and callous incident which has understandably caused the victim a lot of distress."

Police are appealing for witnesses.
