Burglars who smashed a kitchen window to gain access to a property escaped after the owner disturbed them.
The three thieves attempted to burgle a home in Doggetts Way, St Albans, between 1.30pm and 1.40pm on Wednesday (27).
The owner was upstairs at the time when they heard the sound of glass smashing and went downstairs.
Once disturbed, the burglars ran away. One of them is described as a white man of stocky build, between 20 and 25 years old, about 6ft tall and was wearing a grey hooded top.
Police are appealing for witnesses and information.
