Residents confronted by masked burglars
6:00am Tuesday 31st December 2013 in News
Masked burglars who broke into a Yarnton home were disturbed by the residents.
The gang of two or three men wearing balaclavas broke into the house in Meadow Way at about 10pm on Friday, December 20. They ran off towards a vehicle on the grass verge on the northbound side of the A44 near the Budgens store.
Police only revealed the incident yesterday. A small amount of cash was stolen.
Pc Richie Iwanoff appealed for any witnesses to contact him on 101, adding: “This incident was particularly traumatic for the victims, who disturbed the offenders.
“The men ran from Meadow Way towards the A44 via a well-used cut through. We believe they got into a car which was waiting for them and parked on the grass embankment. Vehicles are not usually parked at the location, so the car would have stood out.”
