Calverley: Police appeal after pensioners attacked by burglars

Police are appealing for witnesses after an elderly couple was attacked by three burglars armed with a crowbar at their home in Calverley.

The incident happened last night (Wednesday 30 September) at around 10pm in Clara Drive.

Three men entered the house, tied up a man and woman living there and then stole a safe containing jewellery and cash.

They threatened the two and the man was also hit during the incident.

Both victims – aged in their 70s – suffered minor injuries.

The three men officers want to speak to in connection with the incident were white, wearing dark clothing, gloves and face/head coverings.

They were armed with a crowbar and are believed to have left the scene in a vehicle.

Detective Inspector Vicky Vessey of Leeds District Crime Team, said:

“This was a particularly nasty burglary in which two people aged in their 70s have been the victim of a terrifying ordeal.

“Although thankfully no-one was seriously injured it was obviously a distressing incident for them both and thankfully this type of burglary – and the level of violence used – is rare in Leeds.

“I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or has information about it to get in contact.”

Call police on 101 quoting crime reference 13200490970.
