-Appeal for witnesses-

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following 2 burglaries that occurred recently on the same road in College Town, Sandhurst during the evening of Friday 21 January.

At 6.45pm as the occupant of a house was upstairs when they heard noises downstairs in their kitchen. Upon getting to the stairs they were confronted with a masked male coming up the stairs who turned and fled out of the house through the lounge and rear patio doors that had been smashed open. The intruder is described as been a skinny white male, aged 18-22 years  who was wearing a grey beanie hat, a black face mask, a black top and black leggings.
The home owner remained upstairs and phoned for assistance, it appears that nothing was stolen.

Whilst on scene making enquiries Police were alerted that a second house in the same road had also been burgled whilst the occupants had been out during the evening between 6.45pm and 8.00pm.
Entry had been gained into the second property via a rear door that had been left insecure, and the intruders were able to locate and steal cash and items of jewellery.

A witness has reported seeing 4 suspicious individuals approaching the second address, a pair of young men aged 18 – 20 years dressed all in black with black face masks and then a taller individual with a short stocky man aged 50-65 years, and another witness has reported seeing 4 men running from the attacked house to a car parked further up the road, unfortunately the witness can not specify any detail of the car.
