The pair broke into the home in Aldbourne Way, Hawkesley, at about 4am yesterday morning and demanded cash and jewellery from a woman and teenager.

They made an untidy search and left empty-handed in the direction of a car park on the corner of Pastures Walk and Longdales Road, police said.

The woman and teenager were fortunately not harmed.

Detectives are continuing with their enquiries and are asking anyone who may have any information to get in touch.

The first man is described as about 20, 5ft 6in tall, and had light tanned skin, with distinctive darker patches on the side of his face, and dark rings round his eyes.

The second suspect is described as being slightly taller, and both were wearing dark clothes.

Anyone with any information can contact police via Live Chat at quoting crime number 20BW/111123B/20, or to stay anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
