A 77 year old woman has been dragged to the floor and threatened by two masked men armed with knives during a burglary at her home.

It happened on Sunday September 22 in the Masbrough area of Rotherham when the pensioner heard her dog growling in the back garden and went to investigate.

She was confronted by two men who grabbed her and forced her inside before threatening to harm her and her dog.

Both men who were wearing masks, stole a significant amount of cash, before escaping on foot. The woman suffered minor injuries but was left shaken and upset by what happened.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw or witnessed anything suspicious on the area to contact them
