Police have made an arrest after a teenager was tied up with a phone line during a robbery in Oldham.
Sometime between 4.05pm and 4.30pm on 3 March 2015, two men broke into a house on Melrose Street, Oldham.
As they were searching the downstairs, a 14-year-old boy, who was home alone at the time, came down from his bedroom and was confronted by the pair.
One of the men ripped the phone from the wall and proceeded to tie the boy up using the phone cable.
They then threatened him with a machete before stealing various electrical items, including games consoles and phones.
One offender is described as being of mixed race and about 30 years old. He spoke with a local accent. The second offender is described as white and in his 20s.
Police have now arrested a 32-year-old man on suspicion of aggravated burglary and robbery and remains in police custody for questioning.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 9063, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
