Masked men threaten Leeds mother and daughter at home

Two masked men threatened a woman and her teenage daughter with a knife during a burglary at their Leeds home.

The masked men climbed over a fence into the garden of the Gildersome property at about 0745 BST on Wednesday.

Police said the men threatened the woman with a knife and demanded money, before entering the house and threatening the teenage girl.

The men searched the house before leaving with a quantity of money.

Det Insp Grant Stead said: "The local area was quite busy at the time and there was a large number of people around because of the school run.

"It's very possible that someone may have seen the incident or seen the two men running to or from the house."

Anyone with information is urged to contact the police.
