Would-be thieves burst their way into a home through patio doors and raided an upstairs bedroom before making off empty-handed in an attempted burglary in the city.

Herts Police are appealing for witnesses following the incident in Avenue Road, St Albans, which is believed to have taken place at around 7.30pm on Wednesday, February 18.

Nothing was taken though an upstairs bedroom was searched.

The property’s rear patio doors were also damaged after they were forced open.

DC Chris Fisher said: “Although nothing was taken, the homeowners have been left shaken by the burglary and understandably so.
