Officers are appealing for witnesses and information following a burglary in St Albans.
At around 7.10pm on Saturday, February 22, two men gained access to the back of a property in Gladeside.
They ransacked the house before the victims returned home at around 7.30pm.
One of the offenders pushed the victim in his attempt to make off.
The men then ran out of the property after dropping a pillowcase with jewellery in.
One man is described as white, in his late thirties, around 5ft 9in tall and of a stocky build with a brown beard, a black woolly hat and grey hoody with the hood up.
The man was also wearing orange gardening style gloves and possibly dark coloured trousers and shoes.
