A teenager was tied up witha phone line after being confronted by intruders at his home in Oldham.

Police believe it could be the same offenders from an incident eariler this week when a girl was tied up with a telephone wire and threatened to have her fingers chopped off

Sometime between 4.05pm and 4.30pm on 3 March 2015, two men broke into a house on Melrose Street, Oldham.

As they were searching the downstairs, a 14-year-old boy, who was home alone at the time, came down from his bedroom and was confronted by the pair.

One of the men ripped the phone from the wall and proceeded to tie the boy up using the phone cable.

They then threatened him with a machete before stealing various electrical items, including games consoles and phones.

One offender id described as being of mixed race and about 30 years old. He spoke with a local accent.The second offender is described as white and in his 20s.

Detective Inspector Lewis Hughes, said: “This was obviously an extremely traumatic incident for the young boy who was tied up and threatened in his own home, by two men armed with terrifying weapons and who were hell bent on stealing whatever they could.

“This robbery bears all the hallmarks of a similar incident that occurred in Hollinwood less than a week earlier.

“Do to the circumstances of both incidents we strongly suspect they could be linked and we are continuing to appeal to anyone with information about either incident to call us.

“A digital image has previously been released and I would again ask the public to view this image and serif it resembles anyone they know.

“If so, please call us sowe can stop these two before they strike again.”

Anyone with information isasked to call police on 0161 856 9063, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on0800 555 111.
