BURGLARS armed with a knife are being hunted by police after breaking into a house and demanding money.
They struck at the property on Broom Lane, Rotherham, when a 24-year-old woman and 17-year-old youth were home.
Police said they threatened the pair with violence but did not strike out and ended up leaving empty handed after searching the property.
They were last seen running off towards Worrygoose roundabout.
The burglars were aged in their mid-20s, around 6ft tall and of large, stocky builds. One was Asian and the other white.
Both are believed to have had Leeds or Bradford accents and had their faces partially covered and were wearing dark hooded tops and dark trousers.
n Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information should call a 101 and quote reference 1,324 of March 1.
