Middlesbrough woman attacked and robbed in her own home
A WOMAN has been left extremely shaken after she was attacked and robbed by two men - one wearing bright yellow rubber gloves - who forced their way into her home.
The 58-year-old was assaulted and had a substantial amount of cash and property stolen from her home in the High Street, North Ormesby, Middlesbrough, at around 10.30am on Wednesday (October 9).
She answered her door to a man who forced his way inside, along with another man, and she was hit in the face with an ornament and had to be treated at James Cook University Hospital.
The first suspect is described as a white male with fair skin and blonde or dark blonde fair hair, of average build with a round baby face, approximately 16-years-old. He was wearing a zipped-up light blue jacket and trainers. He spoke with a local accent.
The second suspect is described as a white male with a slight tan, of average build, with dark eyes and a dark, stubbly moustache. He was wearing a black woollen balaclava, a dark coloured jacket and also yellow washing-up style rubber gloves. He also spoke with a local accent.
A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the two males around the time of the incident in the area of Ormesby Hardware Store, the Post Office or bus stop on Cargo Fleet Lane or Heron Store, Bargain Booze Store or The Fountain Public House on the High Street in North Ormesby. It is believed that there were a number of members of the public around who may have seen the men.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Inspector Matt Murphy-King of Middlesbrough CID on the non-emergency 101 number or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
