Elderly couple come face-to-face with burglars in Walton
An elderly couple came face-to-face with two burglars who broke into their home while they were in bed.
Two intruders, who are believed to have climbed in through a window, confronted the couple before stealing a handbag containing money, car keys and jewellery.
One burglar was a white man in his 30s, about 5ft 8in to 5ft 9in, and stocky.
The second burglar was a white man in his 20s, about 5ft 7in, slim and with short dark brown hair.
Both men, who have local accents, are believed to have been wearing dark coloured clothing, with one burglar wearing a dark cap. It is not know what direction the burglars went in after leaving the home.
Detective Constable Anne Simpson from North Surrey CID said: “Coming face to face with two intruders in their home was understandably a very frightening ordeal for the elderly couple.
“We take offences such as burglary very seriously and I would like to assure the residents of Walton that we are doing everything possible to track down those responsible.
“I am appealing to the local community to help identify these people and am urging any witnesses who may have seen anything suspicious in the area, or anyone who may have any information about the incident, to contact Surrey Police as their information may be vital to the investigation."
Anyone with information should call Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference, 45130000308 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
