Last night in Acomb two females forced their way into a vulnerable ladies home (she’s in her 80s), they rifled through her house, then sat her down and made her a cuppa and tried to pressurise her into giving them some money so they could go to the shop for her.
After we received this report we quickly identified the offenders and they were arrested less than an hour later. They were taken to custody for a variety of offences.
