TWO hooded raiders ransacked a house in Timperley as its terrified disabled occupants were forced to look on.

Detectives are now appealing for information after the elderly couple were robbed in their home in Shaftesbury Avenue.

The incident occurred at approximately 3am last Tuesday (July 4), after which police were called to reports of an aggravated burglary.

The men dressed in black had forced their way inside the property through a rear window.

One of the men threatened the couple before forcing them to stay in their chairs in the living room while the other man ransacked the house.

The first man then took a gold bracelet from the woman’s arm before the pair fled the scene with cash and jewellery including two Longines watches worth £1,000 each.

The first man is described as 6ft, of slender build, with dark eyes, and spoke with a local accent. He was wearing a back hooded top and fingerless gloves.

The second man was described as wearing all black.

Police have launched an investigation and are appealing for the public’s help to trace the men responsible.

Detective Constable Simon Johnson, of GMP’s Trafford division, said: “This was a callous burglary committed against a vulnerable elderly couple in their eighties who have been left extremely shaken.

“These men have forced their way inside their home in the middle of the night and subjected them to a terrifying ordeal in the place where they should feel safe.

“It happened in a residential area while people were in bed but the road is a main thoroughfare to Altrincham and anybody driving through may have noticed these individuals acting suspiciously around that time.

“If you saw or heard anything suspicious I would urge you to contact us. I would ask people to look at the photographs bracelet and a watch in case they are offered these to buy. It could prove to be key in helping us find the men responsible.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 266 of 04/07/17, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
