An elderly woman's harrowing 999 call she made moments after being robbed by a knifeman who threatened to slit her throat has been released by police.

Anthony Ormond burst into the flat in a sheltered accommodation complex while the 71-year-old victim watched TV and threatened to stab and strangle her.

Ormond, 30, was captured on CCTV lurking in the hallway of the warden-assisted flats shortly before he barged into the woman's home.
