A burglar who targeted a 72-year-old woman has been sent to prison for three years and eight months, thanks to the great work of officers from Greater Manchester Police Trafford District.
45-year-old Carl Leather armed himself with a screwdriver on 5th January 2022 before forcing his way into the address in the Brooklands area.
Leather smashed the victim’s patio doors before entering the property.
His victim was out at the time, but an alarm was triggered, alerting a neighbour, who called the police.
Police arrived and began searching the property for Leather who attempted to escape by jumping out of a window and making off into a wooded area.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
