Yesterday afternoon (1 November 2021) police were called to a report of an aggravated burglary at an address on Stamford Street, Mossley.
Initial enquiries have established that at around 1.20pm the victim opened her front door to find a man who appeared to be delivering a parcel to the address.
The man has then pushed the victim back inside the property and assaulted her while demanding money and jewellery.
A second offender has then entered and continued to assault the victim before locking her in a downstairs room. They then left the property after searching rooms, leaving empty handed.
The unknown male offenders are described as white and both wearing hi-vis tops, with one described as slim in build and the other of a larger build. They are reported to have arrived in a white van which parked up on the driveway.
Detective Constable Steven Carroll, of Tameside CID, said: " This was an extremely distressing incident for the victim and we have a team of detectives trying to locate these offenders.
"Anyone who has any information at all or anyone who may have witnessed the offenders entering or leaving the property, is asked to call Tameside CID on 0161 856 9262, quoting log 1480 of the 1 November.
Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111".
