Mother and children threatened at knifepoint in Gorleston

A mother and her two children were threatened at knifepoint when burglars raided their Gorleston home.

It happened on Sunday, January 8 at between 9pm and 9.20pm when three men broke into a house in Middleton Road.

One man threatened the family with a blunt knife and stole cash from a wooden money box in the premises as well as an iPhone and a Nokia mobile phone. The iPhone was later recovered.

The woman in her 50s and her two grown up children, were shaken but unhurt.

Anyone with information should contact PC Neil Hargreaves on 101.
