Police want to speak to this man in connection with a burglary in Doncaster.

At around 10.40am on Monday 22 January, a woman in her 30s was tending to her two young children at her home in Highbury Avenue, Cantley when three men wearing balaclavas broke in and came into the room.

The men, who are said to have been carrying knives, made demands for cash and threatened to harm the children, before assaulting the woman and taking her necklace.

She was left with minor injuries and was understandably incredibly upset by what happened.
