Shocking incident: Police are re-appealing for information after a 70-year-old woman was robbed inside a property on The Oval in Acklam in Middlesbrough.

The shocking incident left the woman badly shaken after having a large amount of cash and valuable items taken.

Officers are still keen to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone who may have information regarding the identity of those responsible, as they may be able to assist with enquiries.

The incident occurred on Wednesday 26th October at around 1:30pm when two men entered the property and tied up the victim whilst they searched the house.

The men then left the house with a quantity of money and valuable goods and they are described as being two white males, both with short, dark hair, one was 5 ft 10” tall and the other was 5 ft 6” tall and of chubbier build. They both wore scarves to disguise their faces. The smaller male is described as wearing a black jacket, black trousers and black trainers and the taller male was wearing a black top and grey bottoms.

The victim was not physically injured but was left extremely shaken following the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Mark Doherty on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
