OS Street View SU94NEResidents in the Guildford area are being advised to be extra vigilant following a further attempted distraction burglary in the Guildford Park area.

The latest incident happened on Friday, June 28 when two men claiming to be from a water company went into a semi-detached property in broad daylight. The elderly occupants were targeted just before 5pm when they answered a knock at the door.

The suspects pushed past the pensioner and went into the kitchen and turned on the taps before opening a kitchen cupboard.

The intruders were disturbed by a family friend arriving at the property and as a result the men ran off in the direction of Denzil Road, where they made off in a silver BMW in the direction of the A3.

The suspects are described as two white men. The first suspect is described as 5ft 7” tall, aged 26-years-old and of a slim build. He had short brown hair with a quiff and wore a blue and white checked shirt, blue jeans and black trainers. He is described as having fluff on his face.

The second suspect is described as 5ft 6” tall, aged in his mid-thirties, tanned with a muscular build. He also had short hair with a quiff and was wearing a dark bomber jacket.

Temporary Detective Sergeant Blaine Rafferty investigating said: “This is the second distraction style offence in the locality and whilst it involved a different technique it was again a terrifying ordeal for the householders.

“I urge everyone to be vigilant and to be on guard to anyone who presents themselves uninvited at their door. Please look out for your elderly and vulnerable neighbours and report any suspicious activity to Surrey Police.
