An 18-year-old woman was sexually assaulted during a burglary at her Bradford home.

Police are appealing for information after the incident which happened at about 12.10pm on Monday, December 15, at a house in Langbar Avenue .

Two men wearing balaclavas walked into the woman’s kitchen and approached her. One of the men put one hand over her mouth and the other over her waist, he then moved his hand into her tracksuit bottoms and touched her over her underwear.

The men then left the house and got into a red van with windows, which was believed to have a sliding door.

There was a third man inside the van who got into the driver’s seat.

The two men who entered the house were both white, believed to be over 6 ft tall and of stocky build.

Both were wearing dark clothing.

The woman, who was unhurt, later noticed that a Samsung Galaxy 3 tablet computer and an iPhone 5 had been stolen.

Detective Inspector Ryan Bragg, of Bradford District CID, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen these men or the van in the Chellow Grange area around this time, or anyone who might have been offered these items for sale, possibly at reduced prices.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC2760 Cooper at Bradford District CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
