Elderly couple "upset and frightened" after burglar raids their home in Halifax
An elderly couple were burgled of their possessions in a daylight raid at their home close to Calderdale Royal Hospital.
The house on Skircoat Green Road was burgled by a thief who stole cash, jewellery and porcelain figurines on Thursday afternoon between 3.50pm and 4.30pm, before fleeing the scene carrying the items in a pillowcase which was also stolen.
Police have said the couple were left “upset and frightened” by the incident.
Many people from Huddersfield travel over for hospital appointments and so may have seen something suspicious.
