Police have released an e-fit image of a man who they want to speak to in connection with an aggravated burglary in Bradford.

The offence happened between 10.35am and 10.45am on Saturday, May 9, after two men forced their way into a family home on Rigton Street, Marshfields.

It occurred after a 13-year-old boy who was in the property’s kitchen spotted a man through the kitchen door.

He then ran upstairs and informed his mother who was upstairs ith her 15-year-old son, and three daughters aged nine, five and five.

At this point the suspects had broken in and on seeing them, the mother locked herself and children in her bedroom.

One of the men then came upstairs and demanded the door was opened but fled shortly afterwards after the mother said she had phoned the police.

Nothing was taken in the incident.

A Police spokesman said: “Although nothing was taken and no-one was hurt this was clearly a very distressing incident for this family and we are investigating the circumstances of what has taken place.

“I would ask anyone who has information about this offence, or who can perhaps identify the man in this E-fit to contact Bradford CID on 101.

“Information can also be given to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
