A ter­ri­fied home­owner came face to face with a yob who broke into his Pais­ley flat.

The man heard noises com­ing from his bed­room and raced through and was con­front by a would- be- thief who fled the scene.

Po­lice say the are de­ter­mined to trace the thug who broke into the house in Cam­phill Court, in Pais­ley, at around 9.30pm on Mon­day evening.

It’s be­lieved vic­tim was watch­ing TV in his liv­ing room when he heard a noise com­ing from an­other part of the house.

When he went through to his bed­room, he was met by a man rum­mag­ing through his things.

He chal­lenged him, but the crook fled empty-handed, leav­ing the house­holder un­hurt but deeply dis­tressed.

In­spec­tor Tracy Harkins, of the lo­cal Com­mu­nity Polic­ing Team, ap­pealed for wit­nesses to come for­ward.

She said: “We re­ceived re­ports of a house­break­ing in Cam­phill Court, in Pais­ley, on Mon­day evening, at around 9.30pm.

“The home owner was within the liv­ing room area of his home when he heard a noise com­ing from his bed­room.

“He went to the bed­room area of the house and was met by a man who had en­tered through a win­dow.

“The sus­pect then fled the scene.

“I would ask any­one who saw or heard any­thing sus­pi­cious in the Cam­phill Court area of Pais­ley on Mon­day night to come for­ward to speak to us.”

In­spec­tor Harkins also urged home­own­ers to make sure they se­cure their homes against sneak thieves.

She said: “I would urge all home­own­ers to make sure that they keep their doors and win­dows se­curely locked at all times. I would also ask that home­own­ers keep valu­ables out of sight a all times.”
