A HUNT has been launched to two men who targeted the homes of an 87-year-old and 86-year-old in Hampshire.

Police have have issued CCTV images of two people they want to speak to following two burglaries in Portsmouth.

At around 10pm on Thursday two offenders gain access to a flat on Simpson Road, Portsmouth.

A second incident occurred shortly before 10.30pm that evening.

Two offenders gained access to a flat on Twyford Avenue, Portsmouth.

An 86-year-old woman disturbed the offenders who then ran off.

After they had left the victim noticed cash, a gold watch and a gold ring with three white stones, were missing.

PC Nick Jackson, said: “These were despicable and cowardly acts against two vulnerable people who have been left very unsettled by what has happened by them.

“We’ve released a CCTV image of two people we’d like to speak to about these incidents.

"We understand that the image is a bit blurred, and that one offender has their back turned to the camera. However, someone may still recognise them by their clothing or posture, or may have seen someone similar out and about that evening.

"If you have any information about who they could be, or any other information that could help, please come forward and speak to us.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting 44190195057 or 44190195103.
