'Bad lad' burglar locked up for nearly three years


A teenage burglar has been locked up for almost three years after breaking into a 91-year-old woman’s home in Allerton.

Abbas Mahmood, 18, of Aberdeen Terrace, Lidget Green, was part of a gang that targeted the pensioner’s home in Manscombe Road, breaking in through the patio door while she was alone upstairs.

Bradford Crown Court heard that the vulnerable woman heard a loud bang and went downstairs to see someone heading out the broken door. She was able to activate a panic alarm


Items stolen from her house later linked Mahmood to the January 8 burglary.

Prosecutor Abigail Langford told the court that just 25 minutes later the same gang using the same vehicle attempted to break in to another house, this time in Leaventhorpe Avenue in Thornton.

They waited for the occupier to leave and then tried to force the rear doors. Nothing was stolen but Mahmood was identified from CCTV footage.

He was also charged with trying to break into a house at Pentland Avenue in Clayton on December 18, and two counts of handling stolen goods
