Investigation launched following burglary in Wolverhampton

We’re appealing for information following a burglary in Wolverhampton yesterday afternoon (10 October).

Three men forced their way into a house on Cooke Street in Goldthorn Park around 3.30pm.

Once inside they forced a pensioner on a chair before searching the address and escaping with cash and jewellery.

The 70-year-old managed to run to a neighbour’s address for help. She was taken to hospital to be checked over where she remains in a stable condition.

House to house enquiries have been carried out and CCTV enquiries are underway.

Detective Sergeant Neil Western from force CID, said: “The pensioner is thankfully doing ok, but was very shaken up by the incident and remains in hospital.  

“This happened in broad daylight at a busy time of day. I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time who might have witnessed any suspicious behaviour to get in touch.”
