THREE men, one believed to be carrying a firearm, are wanted by police after a burglary from a house in Queensgate on Tuesday night.

Police were called to the report of a robbery at 10.55pm on Tuesday July 26, where it is alleged three men were attempting to remove lead beading from the outside of a house opposite Queensgate park.

When they were disturbed by the occupiers, the men allegedly threatened the occupiers with what they believed to be a firearm, and forced them into a room of the house before they ransacked the property.

The offenders made off with some cash and a laptop.

One of the offenders is described as a tall white man, of slim build, who was wearing combat trousers and a combat style top.

He was wearing bright blue trainers and a balaclava at the time of the incident.

The only description of the other two men involved is that they were wearing combat trousers.

Police officers stopped cars to speak to a number of members of the public and deployed the police helicopter in their search.

Detective Sergeant Steve Dennison, of Bridlington CID, said: “Incidents like this are extremely rare and thankfully nobody was hurt.

“We are appealing for anyone that may have witnessed anything suspicious in the area, or has any information about the incident to come forward as soon as possible.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Humberside Police on 0845 6060222 quoting log 840 of July 26 2011, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
