Two burglars confronted a homeowner after forcing entry to his property on Bank Holiday Monday.
Officers from Chester Proactive Policing Unit are appealing for witnesses to the break-in which took place in the Huntington area of Chester between 1.15pm and 1.30pm on Monday, May 25.
During the incident, two men forced entry into the address and confronted the homeowner leaving him physically unharmed but shocked. A number of unspecified items were stolen and the estimated value is not being disclosed.
DC Lee Williams, of Cheshire Police, said: “Although the victim was not harmed he was left very shaken by this burglary offence in which he was confronted by the intruders.
“Early enquiries indicate that the offenders may have parked a vehicle up on either Butterbache Road or Chester Road areas of Huntington and we are keen to hear from anyone who was in the local area at that time and believes they may have seen anything suspicious.”
