Appeal to trace two men in connection with break in at home of Olympic cyclist

Police would like to speak to these two men in connection with an aggravated burglary which took place in the Ongar area.

The investigation is in relation to a disturbance at the home of Olympic cyclist Mark Cavendish which took place at about 2.35am on Saturday November 27.

A Louis Vuitton suitcase and two high value watches were stolen and Mr Cavendish and his wife were threatened.

Three people have been arrested and one person charged.

Detectives would now like to locate two further men in connection with the incident.

Jo Jobson is 25 and from Plaistow while George Goddard is 26 and from Loughton. Goddard also has links to the Isle of Dogs, in London.

Detective Inspector Tony Atkin, who is leading the investigation, said: “The investigation is ongoing and, so far, three people have been arrested.

“I now seek the public’s help to locate two men, Jo Jobson and George Goddard. I believe both men will have information which will help the investigation and I would urge them both to come forward.”

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the two men should call 101 and cite Operation Chamber when asked.

The man who has been charged, Romario Henry, 30, of Bell Green, in Lewisham, is due to appear at Chelmsford Crown Court today.

He has not yet entered a plea to two counts of robbery.

Two other men are due to answer bail this week.
