A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said they were alerted by a 999 call from one of the women. She added: 'The two women who were at the property were threatened by three burglars who were armed with a knife. The gang fled before officers arrived and several items of jewellery were stolen.'
The spokesman for GMP said scenes of crime officers had been called to the house and inquiries are continuing. Police also appealed for anyone with information to contact them.
