TWO offenders are on the run after stealing two cars and threatening a woman with a screwdriver during a terrifying break-in at a caravan park.
The woman in her sixties was in a cabin at a Tamworth caravan park off Armidale Road about 5.10am on Tuesday when two offenders stormed in.
Police said the pair threatened the woman, who was visiting Tamworth, with a screwdriver after demanding cash and rummaging through the cabin.
They stole car keys and other goods before fleeing in the Hyundai i30, with Queensland registration plates.
Police said the car was still missing on Tuesday, and had been involved in a brief pursuit with officers that morning.
It was one of two cars stolen by the same offenders; the other was a Mitsubishi sedan taken from the CBD.
The owner, a burger shop staffer, had parked the car at 10.30pm to clean the shop. Thieves took his backpack with the keys from inside.
The car was used in the caravan park break-in before being dumped and set alight in Coledale.
There was a similar incident at Paradise Caravan Park on December 6 in which occupants were threatened, and a car and goods stolen, before a police pursuit.
Detectives are investigating both incidents and are believed to be looking at any links between the offences.
Anyone who saw the vehicles being driven in the early hours of Tuesday is urged to contact Tamworth police on 6768 2999.
