Knife burglar threatens Measham couple

A couple have been threatened with a knife during a "terrifying" burglary at a house in Leicestershire.

A man got into the property in Chapel Street, Measham, on Sunday evening and demanded money from the occupants, before leaving through a rear window.

Police said the victims were left badly shocked but were not hurt.

PC James Seddon said: "This would have been a terrifying experience for them and it's important that we find the person responsible."

The offender was described as being young and slim. He was wearing black shoes, jeans, jacket and gloves and with his face covered.

Police are appealing for witnesses.
