Cheltenham: Knifepoint Burglary

Police in Cheltenham want to speak to a woman spotted on CCTV using cards stolen during a burglary, which was carried out at knifepoint.

Officers say an elderly couple were threatened on Tuesday, November 11th between 7pm and 7.15 at a house on Alma Road. 

The woman in her 70s answered the door and was confronted by two men, one of which was brandishing a knife.

Fifteen minutes later, the woman's cards were used by a woman at Sainsbury’s on Gallagher Retail Park, who is believed to have been with a man at the time.

Anyone who recognises the woman in the CCTV images is ask to call police on 101, quoting ncident number 393 of November 11th.
