The incident is not being linked to an attack on a family in Coedcae, Pontardawe, later the same day, in which a gang of men burst into a family home demanding the car keys, before fleeing empty-handed.

Officers investigating the Cromwell Street incident believe a third man was also involved, who drove the men to Rhondda Street in a blue Ford Focus before the incident occurred.
