Family barricade themselves in during burglary
Would-be thieves smashed their way into a house in Middleton, confronting the homeowner and attacking him and forcing him to barricade himself and his family in the bedroom.
The aggravated burglary happened at the house on Aspinall Street at about 9.35pm on Thursday (9 February 2012).
Two men used a lump of concrete to smash the glass on the kitchen door and then broke in. One was wielding some sort of weapon and ran upstairs, only to be confronted by the homeowner, 30.
The man pushed the thief with the weapon out of the way and ran into the living room, where he was attacked by both offenders, including with the weapon. He managed to free himself and ran back upstairs, barricading himself and his family in the bedroom from where they called police.
The two would-be thieves left empty-handed.
