A TEENAGER was tasered when a armed gang burst into a Denaby home demanding drugs.

Police have launched a manhunt to trace three men who also armed themselves with a knife and a gun to carry out the horrifying attack.

An 18-year-old woman, her 12-year-old brother and the woman’s boyfriend, aged 17, were at home in Manor Court when the raiders pounced.

The gang demanded drugs from the woman and her boyfriend. When they said they did not have any one of the offenders shot the 17-year-old with a taser.

The men started to chase the couple upstairs, but turned round and left half way up the staircase.

Police said the 17-year-old suffered minor injuries to his arm during the attempted burglary which happened at 12.45am on Wednesday.

One of the men is described as being white, 5ft 6ins tall, of medium build. One man is described as being white, 5ft 9ins tall, of chubby build with a deep voice. He was wearing a dark jacket. The third man is black, 5ft 4ins tall, slim and in his 20s.

Anyone with any information about this incident, or who may have witnessed the three men in the area, should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 21 of December 5, 2012.
