Homeowner disturbs would-be burglars in Crawley
A homeowner shouted “get out” at an intruder.
The would-be burglars made off without anything following the incident in The Birches, Crawley, at 4.20am today.
Crawley Police said: “The occupants of the house were woken up by a sound and when investigated saw two figures in their hallway.
“The occupants shouted to the intruders to ‘get out’ which they did.”
Police said the men were in their late teens or early 20s. Both were wearing hooded tops. One was grey and the other darker.
During the early hours of Friday, February 22, a home in Findon Road, Crawley, was targeted. The door was forced and two mobile phones, two iPods and a Galaxy tablet were stolen.
CCTV from the street shows two young men walking along the road at around 4.25am trying doors before forcing the one which is broken into.
Detective constable Andrew Robinson said: “It seems there are two men working together, as one man went into the house while the other one kept watch. The CCTV shows two men who are of slim build.”
Witnesses to either offence should call 101.
