Police are appealing for witnesses following an aggravated burglary where a firearm was used at an address in the Westfield Crescent, Mosborough area of Sheffield.

Shortly before 7pm yesterday (Wednesday 31 October) the occupant of an address on Westfield Crescent, Mosborough, Sheffield, was subject to an aggravated burglary.

It is believed that three offenders entered the address by firing the weapon into the glass porch door. Once inside, the occupant confronted them before leaving the address.

Officers believe the offenders left the scene in a blue Alfa Romeo Mito, which was later found abandoned on Westfield Southway near to the junction with Moss Way.

Police are particularly interested to hear from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the Westfield Crescent area around the time of the offence or saw the described vehicle prior to it being found abandoned shortly after 7pm.

DI Scott Harrison leading the investigation said, “I’m aware many people were in the area at the time and request them to come forward if they have any information that may help identify these offenders.

“Fortunately offences like this are rare and luckily the victim was not injured but we need to know who these people are and I’m hoping the community can help.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 755 of the 31 October 2018.
