TWO arrests have been made after a group of louts wearing balaclavas were spotted smashing windows and a door of a house in Cheltenham.

Police officers were called to an address in Buttermere Close, Cheltenham at around 8.15pm on Friday, December 29 after three males were seen damaging the property. 

Following the incident, the offenders were seen getting into a black car before driving off. 

Nobody was injured during or after the attack.

The group of males - who were all dressed in black and had their faces covered with balaclavas - were carrying what appeared to be a baseball bat, a hammer and a bladed weapon.

Two people, a 17-year-old boy and a 21-year-old man, were later arrested on suspicion of affray. 

They remain in police custody while enquiries continue.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who has CCTV or dashcam footage of the incident.

They would also like to speak to anybody who may have information and who has not already talked to police.
