Bur­glars tar­get el­derly vic­tim

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

AN el­derly man has fallen vic­tim to a dis­trac­tion bur­glary car­ried out by two men.

A bur­glar en­tered the house in Eleanor Road, Chal­font St Peter while his ac­com­plice dis­tracted the man at the front door on Fri­day.

The man who knocked started to walk around the out­side of the house when the door was an­swered and the vic­tim fol­lowed him, while an­other man en­tered the house through a back door.

The bur­glar was chal­lenged by an­other per­son in the house and he then es­caped empty handed.

One of the men is de­scribed as white, stocky, around 40 and 5ft 6ins tall.

The other man was also white, around 40, and about 5ft 8ins tall. He was slim with dark, medium length hair and stub­ble and was wear­ing a pale grey t-shirt and dark trousers.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent. In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer De­tec­tive Sergeant Lucy Seabright said: “This was a fright­en­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for the home own­ers and I would ask any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion about th­ese men to con­tact the po­lice on 101.”
