They struck on Chapel Walk, Rawmarsh, at around 5pm on Saturday, January 4 after arriving at the property in a Cherokee Jeep.

While the riders were inside the house, four men who were passing by heard the house alarm sounding and went to intervene.

As the offenders fled the house, leading empty-handed, they threatened the other four men with a knife and attempted to take their car.
