A householder chased away three armed burglars who tried to break into a neighbour’s house in Failsworth.
The incident, on Leicester Road early last Wednesday evening, was recorded on the homeowner’s CCTV. The footage shows the 49-year-old father of two fending off the thieves, who had a knife and a hammer, after he caught them breaking in through the back door of a neighbour’s home.
It is believed the burglars, who wore balaclavas and got out of a light-coloured BMW X5 car, were trying to retrieve the keys to an Audi TT car parked outside.Though they didn’t take the car they got away with cash after prizing open a safe with a crowbar.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
