Burglars drove off after the people who house was being targeted were awoken.
The attempted burglary happened at 12.30am on Friday (August 16) in Downs Crescent.
The victims were asleep upstairs when they were woken by noises outside the front of the house and upon turning on the bedroom light, heard a car drive off.
The next morning they discovered that a small window in the living room was wide open and the blind had been pulled all the way up with the cords hanging outside.
It appears that the buarlars were scared off, so no entry was gained and nothing were stolen.
Anyone with information can call Pc Richard Oldroyd on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
