At around 8.30am on Monday (18/3), the victim, a 66-year-old man, answered a knock at the door. A man claiming to be from an electric company pushed his way into the house, tampered with the landline and fuse box and then left.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or who has any information about what happened can contact Thames Valley Police on 101 quoting ‘43190082248’ or make a report online.

We would also urge anyone who was in the area at the time to check dash-cam footage to see if it captured the incident.
