Police are appealing for information after a burglary which left an elderly man and woman terrified.
The incident took place in Yarm, at around 1.30pm yesterday, Monday 18th January.
Two male suspects knocked on the door of the house on Urlay Nook Road and forced their way in when a 78-year-old woman answered. They then searched the house and demanded money before making threats to harm a man, aged in his eighties, who was also in the house.
The suspects took around £1000 in cash and left in a small black vehicle which drove off on Urlay Nook Road towards Darlington.
The first male is described as around 30-years-old with dark hair, of big build with an Irish accent. He smelt of alcohol.
The second male is described as aged between 50 and 60 years old, with a red face and much taller and bigger than the first suspect. He was wearing a flat cap.
Detective Constable Andrew Menzies from Stockton Volume Crime Team said:
This incident has left the elderly victims feeling terrified and vulnerable. The men threatened the elderly man and stole approximately £1000 in cash before making off in a small, black vehicle.
I’d like to appeal to anyone who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area of Urlay Nook Road or anyone who may have seen a small black vehicle in the area at around 1.30pm yesterday to get in touch with police.”
Armed police attended an attempted burglary following a report that a house in Darlington was entered by men with weapons.
The call to Yarm Road was received at 2.30pm this afternoon, January 14.
The road remained closed until officers were satisfied no weapons were present, which was around 3.20pm.
Enquires into the burglary are continuing and police have said they do not believe there is a risk to the wider community.
