Officers are asking for your help to trace two men who broke into a pensioner’s home on Rowena Drive in the Thurcroft area of Rotherham on Monday 25 February.
At around 11.15pm, it is reported that the men, who had covered their faces with balaclavas, smashed their way in to the 79- year-old’s home. This was a targeted attack where the men forced the homeowner to watch as they stole several western style replica weapons, which were on display.
