TWO masked burglars threatened to stab a teenager in his bedroom when they broke into his home and demanded he hand over his brother’s car keys.

Cassius Hussain, 18, from Firbeck, in Harden, was lying in bed at 11.45 on Monday morning when the two raiders came into his bedroom armed with a knife.

The pair had broken into the home by smashing a glass door and the stunned teenager was threatened and told he would be stabbed if he did not hand over the keys to his brothers VW Golf R which was parked on the driveway.

His brother was in another part of the home, which could not be accessed by the burglars, at the time of the break-in.

Cassius, an A-Level student at Beckfoot School, had no idea where his brother had put his keys, forcing the intruders to leave empty handed.

He said: “I was in bed when they walked into my room.

“It was really confusing and I didn’t know who it was.

“They were wearing black masks and one was carrying a knife.

“They were threatening me with a knife and one of them said “stab him”.

“I was in shock and panicking. I couldn’t do anything.”

The burglars left Cassius in his room so they could search the house before coming back into his room for a second time to demand the keys.

The ordeal lasted between five and 10 minutes before they fled the scene.

Cassius added "I waited until I couldn't hear any noises then went downstairs and found cupboards had been emptied all over the house, and the back door smashed."

The family-of-six who live in the home are now trying to put extra security measures in place to protect them from any further break-ins.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said "Police are investigating this incident which is believed to have happened between 11.45am and 11.55am on Monday.
