TWO men tried to force their way into a Southampton home in an attempted burglary.

They were discovered trying to force open the patio doors of the home in Prince of Wales Avenue at about 8.50pm on March 20.

One of the occupants of the house woke up after hearing a noise, and found the wouldbe intruders.

The occupant, a man in his 60s, scared them off by banging the door and then called the police.

The men were wearing dark clothing and possibly baseball caps under dark hooded tops.

Anyone with information should contact DC Katherine Gillingham at Shirley CID on 101.

She said: “The victims of this attempted burglary were feeling ill and were in bed when this incident happened.

“Please look out for your neighbours and report anything suspicious.”

Burglars should be horse whipped in public.
They are nothing but scum.
It seems to be a crime with little or no deterant.
