Appeal for Witnesses Following a Burglary in Horton cum Studley

Alert message sent 08/10/2019 16:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a burglary in Horton cum Studley.
At around 9.50pm on Friday 4 October 2019 offenders gained entry to a house on Brill Road via an insecure front door.  Once inside the offenders removed the alarm panel from the hallway wall.
The offenders stole two handbags, a set of keys, a purse and a wedding ring.  One of the bags was small and made of navy blue leather with a shoulder strap and a strip of beige (approximately A5 in size).  It had an outside pocket on one side and a zipped pocket on the other.  The purse was later found by a member of the public but some of the cards were missing.
The occupant approached the offenders who then left on foot.  It is believed that one of the offenders was carrying a bladed weapon in his right hand– possibly a long, thin, serrated saw.  No vehicles were seen.
The first offender is described as being male of mixed race (possibly Philipino).  He is about 5 ft. 10 ins. tall and of a sturdy build.  He was wearing a smart, pale turquoise jacket, zipped up halfway with a grey bandana covering the lower part of his face.  He was carrying the bladed instrument.
There is currently no description available of the second offender and it is not clear if there was a third.
Investigating Officer Detective Constable Natasha Long of CID based at Banbury Station said, “We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have information to call our 24-hour enquiry centre on 101, quoting URN 43190308082 or report online.”
If you don’t want to speak directly to police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.  No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
