Raiders target children’s party looking for drugs
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.”
