Stretford woman confronted by two burglars in own home
BURGLARS were waiting for a Stretford woman when she returned to her Edge Lane home.
The 48-year-old woman was confronted by two intruders in her hallway at around 2.20pm on September 12.
The woman ran from the house shouting for help and the two thieves escaped by climbing over a garage and running off towards Wansbeck Lodge.
They had forced entry into the house by breaking down a side door and had also smashed the sounding alarm with an unknown item.
While in the house they searched the property and stole two laptops, an iPad and a mobile phone.
One offender was white, about 21-years-old, 5ft 10in tall and of slim build. He had short fair hair and was wearing a dark hooded top and grey tracksuit bottoms.
The second offender is described as white, again around 21-years-old and of medium build.
PCJackie Donohue, said: “The victim got quite a shock when she returned home to find two burglars in her hallway and is obviously upset and distressed at knowing they have rummaged through her personal belongings and stolen personal possessions.
“If anyone was in the area and saw these two men at the time of the burglary or thinks they know who they are then please call us.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
