The independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers, is offering a reward of up to £2,000 for information regarding the burglary of a woman in West Parley.
The victim was home alone watching television on the evening of Saturday 20 December, when two men broke into her home, threatened her with a long silver blade and then tied her up whilst they ransacked the house. They stole an undisclosed amount of cash plus a quantity of expensive and sentimental jewellery.
The first man wore all dark clothing and a hood over his head and face, whilst the second offender wore blue tracksuit trousers with a white stripe down the side and a dark coloured hooded top with the hood up. Both men had their faces covered.
The charity is now offering a reward of up to £2,000 for information passed through Crimestoppers’ anonymous 0800 555 111 number that leads to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators.
Crimestoppers Regional Manager for Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, Paul Elliott, said: “I cannot begin to imagine what this woman has gone through during this terrifying ordeal.
“These men have left a lady feeling completely traumatised and unsafe in her own home. This is why I am urging anyone who knows anything about this burglary to contact Crimestoppers anonymously, safe in the knowledge that no one will ever know you spoke to us. You won’t have to speak to the police and you won’t ever be called to court.”
If you have any information on this crime then please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through our Anonymous Online Form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
*Note: The reward will only qualify if information is passed to Crimestoppers’ 0800 555 111 number. Information passed to police will not qualify.
