Police have managed to track down images of two burglary suspects from bus tickets recovered inside the coat of an intruder who broke into a Manchester home.
The 61-year-old victim was confronted by two burglars when he went to investigate a noise in the bedroom of his house in Churchstone Walk, Baguley, on May 17.
As the offenders left, the householder grappled with one of the men and was able to pull off his jacket.
It was only after they had gone that he noticed valuable and sentimental items of jewellery had been taken from his home.
As part of the police investigation, officers recovered bus tickets in the pocket of the jacket taken from the offender.
Police have now released CCTV images from the bus of two men they are keen to trace.
The burglary happened at around 3pm on April 13 in her home on Royal Oak Road, Baguley.
The woman fought back but the man cut her. He ran off after her elderly dog bit his arm.
A 40-year-old woman is recovering after being slashed across her cheek and arm by a burglar.
She was upstairs in her Baguley home when she heard a noise in the kitchen.
When she went down to investigate the burglar saw her, picked up a knife from the kitchen side and lunged at her.
