Police are investigating an attempted robbery at a house in Thorne which saw the occupants threatened by two men, one of whom was armed with a knife.
Officers are looking for help in tracing the movements of a black BMW saloon, allegedly involved in the incident.
A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police said: “At about 9.45am on Saturday 6 May, the car is said to have reversed on to the driveway of a house in Redland Crescent, before two men reportedly wearing dark clothing and masks got out of the car.
“The men are said to have tried to damage the gates of the house before climbing over a neighbour’s wall and entering the house”.
Detective Sergeant Debra Renwick, the investigating officer, said: “The men then threatened two people inside the house and made demands for cash. One of the men is said to have been carrying a knife, although thankfully no one was injured during the incident.
“They left the house empty handed and we are keen to hear from anyone who has any information about this incident and in particular, anyone who can help us trace the movements of the car prior to the incident.”
