Raiders tar­get chil­dren’s party look­ing for drugs

The Sunday Telegraph - - News -

A chil­dren’s birth­day party game of pass the par­cel was in­ter­rupted when armed raiders wav­ing knives broke into the house and de­manded drugs.

Nor­folk Po­lice launched a man­hunt to find the gang who crashed into the party at 6.50pm on Fri­day night in Old Cat­ton, a sub­urb two miles out­side Nor­wich city cen­tre.

De­tec­tives said the raiders may have tar­geted the wrong house, but that was no con­so­la­tion to the fam­ily and young chil­dren at the birth­day party.

Insp Gra­ham Dal­ton, of Nor­folk Po­lice, said: “They were ask­ing for drugs. That is re­ally sad, es­pe­cially as there were some chil­dren in the ad­dress. We have en­quiries on­go­ing lo­cally, in­clud­ing CCTV.”
