We are requesting the public’s assistance to help establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

In particular, officers would like to speak to a male who was seen in the area at the time dressed in dark clothing with his jacket hood pulled up over a cap. The male’s jacket was described as dark blue or black with white detailing on the sleeves. Prior to the burglary he was carrying a crutch and after the burglary he was seen heading towards Oxford Terrace via Tower Street and the Council Car Park with two bikes either side of him.
