Women jump from upstairs window to escape burglary

TWO young women jumped from an upstairs window of a house to escape an aggravated burglary.

Both women were taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, one suffering a broken elbow and another with spinal injuries, following the episode in Haverhill yesterday.

Police were called to a house in Elmdon Place at 4.05pm after a door was kicked in and furniture thrown.

Officers found an argument going on outside the home and immediately arrested a 27-year-old man from Haverhill.

A knife was also seized at the scene.
