Sunderland Echo - - What’s In Your Echo -

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion af­ter masked raiders be­lieved to be armed with a ham­mer raided a house in Sun­der­land.

At 11.37pm on Tues­day, po­lice re­ceived a re­port a group of peo­ple wear­ing masks had en­tered an ad­dress in Ox­ford Square, Pal­lion, and were be­lieved to be car­ry­ing a ham­mer.

When con­fronted by the oc­cu­pant, they made off empty-handed. Thank­fully, no one was in­jured.

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion has been launched into the in­ci­dent, and po­lice are now ea­ger to hear from any wit­nesses who saw any­thing sus­pi­cious at the time of the bur­glary.

Of­fi­cers are es­pe­cially keen to hear from res­i­dents near the junc­tion be­tween Fal­mouth Road and Ox­ford Square – where the group is be­lieved to have gath­ered at about 11.30pm.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact po­lice on 101 quot­ing ref­er­ence 1074 080119 or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
