Police investigating a robbery in Newcastle in which a 65-year-old woman was tied up and doused in petrol have made three arrests.
Sheila Quadrini, the ex-wife of a Tyneside nightclub tycoon, dialled 999 with her tongue after the raiders fled her luxury home in Gosforth last month.
Northumbria Police said men aged 36, 43 and 60 from County Durham have been arrested, but have since been released on bail.
Mrs Quadrini was held hostage for an hour after she was attacked when she returned home from work. Raiders took cash and jewellery from the house in Gosforth.
She is the ex-wife of Michael Quadrini who ran a number of nightspots, including the famous Tuxedo Princess floating club on the Tyne.
"We have made three arrests in connection with the incident but inquiries into the burglary continue.
We still need anyone with any information, anyone that could have seen something suspicious on the night it happened or maybe heard something about it since, to come forward and share it with police as soon as possible.
This was a terrible ordeal for the victim who has understandably been left incredibly shaken and distressed and we are doing all we can to put those responsible before the courts."
Police are appealing for witnesses after three burglaries in Gosforth, Newcastle, on October 10.
Two took place at Fernwood Avenue and one at Church Road. A spade was taken from one burglary and used to try and break in to another.
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
"These three burglaries all happened during the day on Wednesday and it appears they are linked. A spade stolen from a shed at one of the homes appears to have been used to try to gain access to another.
"With the onset of darker evenings I'd like to remind residents to be vigilant, report anything suspicious to police at the earliest opportunity and to ensure their homes and secure at all times.
"Extra patrols will be taking place in the area and we're carrying out extensive enquiries to trace the person responsible."
