Burglary warning to residents

RESIDENTS are being warned to be vigilant after a burglary and an attempted incident in Oakenshaw within a week.

The same man is thought to be responsible for an attempted burglary in Rosehall Close two weeks ago and another daytime incident in Patch Lane last week.

Nothing was taken at Rosehall Close but an unsuccessful attempt was made to force open a window at the back of the house.

A man was seen by a neighbour outside the home around 11.30am one day the week before last, knocking on the door then going through to the back.

A man of similar description was then seen jumping into a back garden in Patch Lane by a teenage girl at 11am on Monday, November 12.

He was white, in his late 20s or early 30s, slim with short, dark hair and a nose piercing.

Det Con Claire Johnson said: "No attempt was made to break into the house but the girl was wearing a brightly coloured dressing gown and may have been spotted by this man. When our officers arrived he had left the scene."

Residents who see anyone hanging around their neighbourhood should call police straightaway. Anyone with any information about the incidents should call 101.
