Police are appealing for witnesses to an aggravated burglary in Redcar.
The incident happened between 8pm and 9pm on Bank Holiday Monday, on Queen Street, when a man, who was reportedly in possession of a knife, attended a property and demanded cash.
He entered the property and another male followed him in, also in possession of a knife.
The suspects left the address with four air soft type weapons, an iPhone 11 and a Sony Experia mobile phone.
Officers believe there may have been other males waiting outside, and all made off in the direction of Henry Street. They were wearing dark clothing and face masks. One was wearing a balaclava.
Anyone who may have information regarding the incident, or who may have been offered any of the items for sale, is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

The suspect is described as a white male, around 34 years old, 6ft tall, of average build and with brown hair around the back and sides and a distinctive red Mohawk style on the top. He was wearing black square rimmed glasses, a grey hooded top, grey bottoms and grey trainers.

Police are appealing for information after three motorbikes were stolen from a motorcycle business in Guisborough early on Saturday morning.
At around 00:15am on 28th August three males forced entry to the premises on Morgan Drive in the town; two arrived in a black Renault Trafic van and one on a motorcycle.
It's believed they then used a power tool to remove the metal shutter and forced an internal door to gain access.
A gold Gas Gas Raga, an orange Scorpa bike and a yellow SWM 1981 bike were loaded into the Renault van which was then driven down Morgan Drive turning left onto Rectory Lane before leaving the area.
Inquiries are on-going and officers are appealing for anyone with CCTV, dashcam or other information which could help, to contact them.
