Two are in custody after raid on house in Low Moor
7:00am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
A man and a woman remained in custody last night following an aggravated burglary at a family home in Bradford.
A gang of four or five masked men broke into the property in Park Road, Low Moor, at 3pm on Monday.
Two women and an elderly man were confronted in the house by the intruders, who made threats and claimed to be armed with a gun.
They stole jewellery before fleeing in a black Ford Focus. The occupants of the house were unhurt but severely shocked.
They raised the alarm and the police helicopter tracked the Ford Focus as it drove, at speed and overtaking other vehicles, to Huddersfield, where two suspects got out.
Police want to speak to anyone who saw a black Ford Focus in the Lowergate area of Huddersfield at about 3.30pm on Monday. It was abandoned in Quarmby, Hudders-field.
Following searches of the area, armed officers attended a block of flats at 7.30pm and arrested a 24-year-old Huddersfield man on suspicion of burglary. A 23-year-old woman, also of Huddersfield, was later arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to burgle.
Anyone with information about the Focus is asked to contact Bradford South CID on 101.
