Two Men With A Knife Break Into House In York


1:21pm 21st October 2014

At around 9.50pm on Sunday 19 October 2014, one of the occupants of a shared house on Surtees Street, in Clifton, returned home to find that a ground floor bedroom door had been forced open.

As he went to investigate further two men came down the stairs and left the house via the back door.

One of the men was white around 5ft 5in tall, with a stocky build. He was wearing black clothing, gloves, a hooded-top with the hood up and a black scarf covering the bottom half of his face.

The second man is described as 5ft 8in tall with a big build. He was wearing a grey or white top and tracksuit bottoms similar in colour to his top. He was carrying the knife but did not threaten the victim with it.

The men broke into two bedrooms at the house and stole a new iPhone 5.

Officers are appealing to anyone with information about the burglary to contact them as soon as possible.

Detective Constable Kevin Goodman, of York CID, said:

“Fortunately the victim was not hurt in this incident but he was left very scared by the experience."

“I am appealing to anyone who may have seen two men acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the incident to get in touch with the police or Crimestoppers.”

Anyone who can help officers with their enquiries is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 2 – and ask for DC Kevin Goodman or York CID.

Alternatively, information can be emailed to kevin.goodman@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk

If you prefer not to give your name, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
