Police are searching for witnesses after a burglary and an attempted burglary in St Albans last month.

Thieves forced entry through patio doors at the rear of a Green Lane home just before 8am on September 23, but no items were taken as the alarm was activated.

The two young men, who were reportedly wearing caps, then went through gardens in Partridge Road and attempted to gain entry to another house.

After they were disturbed by the victim the pair made off towards High Oaks.

Det Con Dean Trollope from St Albans’ Local Crime Unit said: “We have been made aware that a member of the public stopped the two offenders after they had jumped a fence in Partridge Road and I am keen to speak with this person as they could provide vital information.

“The witness is described as a white man aged in his 50s or 60s and was wearing jeans and a jacket.”

Anyone with information should contact the police on the non-emergency number 101, or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
