Angry residents drag burglar along Manningham street after they catch him red-handed on a roof

A TEENAGE burglar was dragged by his feet shouting and screaming when he was caught red-handed on the roof of a house he had just ransacked.
The residents of Southfield Square, Manningham, were “less than impressed” to discover their neighbour’s bedroom had been entered through a skylight and stripped of £1,570 of property, Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday.
Usama Zaid, 18, was taken to hospital for a check-up after he was cornered and left with more than bumps and bruises, his solicitor advocate, Nicholas Leadbeater, said.
Zaid and a boy aged 16, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were in Bradford city centre for a night out when they decided to enter the terrace property through an open skylight late on May 6.
Prosecutor, Peter Byrne, said the window was open because it was a warm evening.
A mother and her daughters were in the house at the time but did not realise an intruder was on the premises.
The woman’s son came home to find his room ransacked, with stuff strewn all over the floor, and the burglars still on the roof.
Zaid, of Cherry Place, Burmantofts, Leeds, was detained by angry residents until the police arrived.
