Appeal following aggravated burglary in Waterlooville

Press release   •   Mar 29, 2019 14:23 GMT

We are appealing for witnesses and information after an aggravated burglary at a property in Waterlooville.

The incident occurred between 10.30pm and 11.55pm on Wednesday, March 27, at a property in London Road, Waterlooville.

Three, possibly four suspects, all white males aged between 18 and 30, broke into the property by smashing the double patio doors at the rear of the house.

Two residents in the property at the time – a 54 year old woman and an 87 year old woman - were locked in the bathroom while the suspects carried out an untidy search of the house, causing damage to doors and walls.

They stole gold jewellery and cash. They also attempted to steal an Audi Q3 from the driveway but were unsuccessful. The car was started but left running on the drive so officers believe the suspects may have been disturbed.

Detective Sergeant Damian Glendenning said: “This is an incredibly rare incident but was obviously extremely traumatic for the residents at the property.

“We are appealing for anyone who heard or saw anything suspicious at or near this location around this time. Were you walking or driving down this road? Do you have dash cam footage?

“Do you recall seeing the Audi Q3 with its engine running, might you have disturbed the intruders?

“If you think you have any information, no matter how insignificant you may think it is, please get in touch.”

The first suspect is described as being white and chubby, with blonde hair and between five foot four to five foot six in height. He is believed to be aged between 25 and 30 years old.

The second suspect is described as being white and skinny, between five foot and five foot two tall, aged between 18 and 25 years old.

The third suspect is white and of medium build. He is around 23 – 27 years old and five foot seven to five foot eight tall.

The fourth suspect was not seen.
