Things didn’t quite go to plan when a man burgled a property in Melbourn on Monday afternoon.

He forced open the door of the home in Greenbanks, but there were two occupants inside the house at the time who were alerted to the noise.

When the man saw the victims he turned around and left – running towards the High Street.

The incident occurred at about 3.45pm, and the man is described as white, 5ft 9in, aged 21 to 40, with short ginger hair.

Nothing was taken.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
