BURGLARS broke into a house in Den­ham while the el­derly own­ers were in the liv­ing room un­aware that their pos­ses­sions were be­ing stolen.

The vic­tims, an 82-year-old man and 92-year-old woman, were in their house, in Ox­ford Road, when they heard a noise in the hall­way at around 9.20pm on Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 28.

The man went to in­ves­ti­gate and found a rear win­dow had been forced open at their home.

A ring, hand­bag and a wal­let con­tain­ing a sum of cash had been stolen from a bed­room, along with bank cards and the cou­ple’s bus passes.

Two peo­ple were seen leav­ing from the front of the prop­erty.

The first is de­scribed as white, in his 60s and of stocky build. He was wear­ing a grey hooded top, grey track­suit bot­toms with white stripes and white train­ers, and was seen walk­ing away in the di­rec­tion of the Londis shop, in Ful­mer Cor­ner, Ox­ford Road.

The sec­ond was wear­ing a dark hooded top and walked towards the Toby Carvery, in Ox­ford Road.

No fur­ther de­scrip­tion is avail­able.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer PC Paul Bridge­worth, based at Taplow po­lice sta­tion, said: “This has been a very dis­tress­ing in­ci­dent for the el­derly cou­ple in­volved and I would like to ap­peal for any­one with any in­for­ma­tion to get in touch via the 24-hour Thames Val­ley Po­lice en­quiry cen­tre by di­alling 101.”
