A woman interrupted two alleged thieves in her house on Sunday.November 13, 2012 4:20am
A local woman had a frightening ordeal on Sunday when she returned home to find two unknown intruders in her house.
The two men escaped with an iPhone, iPod, iPod dock, laptop and external hard drive, according to police.
However, the woman was able to provide a detailed description of the alleged assailants.
Police said the woman had left her Harfleur St home on Sunday to go shopping, and returned about noon.
While she was gone, an attempt was made to force open the locked front door, damaging the door.
Entry was eventually gained through an unlocked side door, according to police.
Police said the woman arrived home and heard the men trying to get out the back door.
She began screaming, and the men left the house and jumped a back fence.
They had allegedly also been trying to steal the woman’s handbag and scarf from inside the house, but dropped them during their escape.
The woman went next door and called the police.
The woman’s iPhone was later recovered in Edward St in west Deniliquin and returned to her.
One of the alleged thieves is described as 175cm to 180cm tall, with pale skin and a thin build, dark hair, and was wearing a baseball cap, white t-shirt and denim jeans.
The second man was wearing a light coloured t-shirt.
Deniliquin Police crime manager Detective Inspector Darren Cloake urged people to lock their homes and vehicles, saying insurance policies could be voided if property was left unsecure.
There were also another two cases of wallets being stolen from unlocked cars over the weekend.
‘‘Property offences are what is hurting this town at the present stage,’’ Det Insp Cloake said.
‘‘If the house is left unsecure people might find that their insurances claims are void. They need to bear that in mind when they walk out.’’
Police are urging anyone with information to contact the Deniliquin Police Station on 5881
