Noxious substance thrown in County Durham man's face
Police are seeking two masked men who threw a noxious substance into the face of a County Durham man after forcing their way into his home.
The pair, one carrying a knife, targeted the house on Seventh Avenue, Chester-le-Street, on Sunday night.
They took a quantity of cash, before leaving on foot.
The householder was uninjured but a family member was taken to the hospital as a precaution, following exposure to the fumes from the substance.
The pair were wearing crudely fashioned ski masks, and one was described as having piercing light blue eyes.
