Police have issued CCTV footage of two men they want to identify in connection with a distraction burglary attempt at the home of an elderly man in Saltford.
Two men called at the home of an 81-year-old man in the Manor Road area, at just after 5pm on Wednesday 2nd December.
When the victim heard the door handle go, he saw the two men outside and spoke to them through the door but didn’t let them inside.
Investigating officer PC Kerry Grace said: “Unfortunately this is the second time this victim has been targeted by this type of offending.
“Fortunately, the men didn’t get the chance to steal anything and the victim called the police.
“One of the men we are trying to identify is in his twenties and he spoke with an Irish accent. He was wearing a distinctive turquoise ski-hat with dark blue hoops around it and orange gloves.
“The second man is wearing a dark hooded top, with the hood up, the same style of orange gloves and grey trousers.
“Did you see these men in the Manor Road area of Saltford on the date of this incident? Do you recognise any of the clothing they were wearing? Have you been a victim of a similar offence? If so, please call us.”
If you can help, call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5220274786.
