Officers were called to Furness Avene, Oldham for the report of a burglary. Enquires established that a window of the property had been broken and two people who are a female and a male had entered the property.
The two offenders stole several items including a computer, a kitchen knife, and a wallet. During the burglary, a 52-year-old man was threatened with a knife by the male offender.
No injuries were reported. Both of the offenders were described as white but no further details have been shared with the public. Enquires are ongoing.
Detective Inspector Tom Howard of Oldham GMP’s district, said: “Thankfully the occupant of the house did not sustain any injuries during the burglary but he had been left, understandably, incredibly shaken by the ordeal.”
“We’re appealing to anyone who may have been in the area at the time or saw a male and female in the area acting suspiciously to come forward and speak with police. We would also ask those who live in the vicinity to check any CCTV or dash-cam footage they might have around the time of the incident. Any information could greatly assist our investigation.”
