Two people have been arrested in Guisborough for aggravated burglary in the early hours of yesterday.
Police were called to the report of the burglary at a property on Stakesby Close in Guisborough at around 3:30am yesterday morning.
It was reported that a man and woman had smashed a window to access the property, dragged the male victim in his 70s out of bed and injured his hands with a knife to entice him to tell them his pin number.
They then reportedly stole the victim's bank card and cash and left the property.
Soon after the incident was reported, officers traced one of the suspects hiding underneath a car and the second suspect was located in a nearby property.
A 37-year-old man, and a 33-year-old woman, were arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and they both remain in custody.
Anyone who has any information regarding the incident or has CCTV footage showing the man and woman prior to or after the incident is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
Police have arrested a man in connection with an incident of burglary and attempted burglary in our area.
Officers from the Stockton Neighbourhood Team arrested a 48-year-old man in connection with a burglary and an attempted burglary which both occurred on Normanby Road in Eston in June of this year.
The first incident occurred at around 4pm on Monday 20th June when it was reported that a man had accessed the property and stole a handbag containing cash and car keys and then used the bank card to make a number of contactless purchases at a supermarket.
The second incident occurred on Friday 24th June when it was reported that a man entered a property and shouted to see if anyone was home. The occupant was home and the man left the property empty handed.
A police officer managed to identify the suspect via a CCTV image and Stockton Neighbourhood Officers spotted the suspect in their patch on Tuesday.
He has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have apologised after issues with garden waste bin collections yesterday.
Due to a shortage of drivers, the garden waste bins in some parts of Redcar East and The Zetland Ward area were not been collected.
Residents in these areas are being asked to put their garden waste bins out again this morning for collection.
The council has apologised for any inconvenience this may cause.
