Two bailed after pensioner hurt during Wearside burglary

Two men have been bailed in connection with a burglary on Wearside in which an elderly man was assaulted.

The pensioner suffered a head wound after three men broke into his house on Prince's Gardens in Seaburn on Saturday.

The 76-year-old man was struck over the back of the head and a 74-year-old woman was threatened in the attack.

A 38-year-old man and a 28-year-old man were arrested at the time, but have since been bailed.
