Police are appealing for information after two puppies were stolen during an aggravated burglary.
The incident happened between 10.30pm and 11pm on Tuesday when a group of around five people entered a house on Clarendon Street in Redcar and threatened the householder.
All are described as male, wearing dark clothing, and all but one had his face covered.
They removed two puppies from the address, however both have now been returned to their rightful owner and are safe and well.
Officers are following several lines of inquiry to trace the people believed to be responsible and we would ask anyone with information which could assist to contact Detective Sergeant Emma Kensey via the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A passing off-duty nurse tended to the cyclist, who suffered rib injuries and grazing.
The motorcyclist is described as a lone male riding a green 125 Enduro style motorcycle which had been driving across a grassed area before the collision happened.
Anyone with information regarding the identity of the motorcyclist or any witnesses to the collision are asked to contact police.
