A woman stole a phone and wallet from the home of a 74-year-old man in Thornhill
POLICE are hunting a woman who committed a distraction burglary at a Southampton pensioner's home.
A Samsung mobile phone and a wallet was stolen from the property in Fairfax Court, Thornhill after a woman approached the 74-year-old man in his front garden.
She was invited inside after asking to use his toilet and then asked him for a drink.
But while he was in the kitchen the woman left and the resident noticed his phone and wallet were missing.
She got into a silver ‘family’ car before driving off and was described as white, aged around 30, of curvy build, with short fair hair and around 5ft 4ins tall.
The incident took place on Sunday, March 30, at around 3pm.
This efit image of her has been released and police are appealing for anyone with information to contact DC Chris Moss at Bitterne CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
