Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after a burglary in which jewellery was stolen from an address in Aylesbury.
At about 3pm last Friday (8th July), a 41 year-old woman and her 16 year-old daughter were at home in Masons Court when a woman knocked on a door to say she was setting up a beauty and hair dressing business in Aylesbury, and then she left.
A few minutes later the woman knocked at the door again and asked if she could use the toilet, which the victim allowed.
After using the toilet, the woman asked the victim for her mobile number; which the victim assumed was for when she opened the beauty salon.
The victim went upstairs to get her mobile phone and, whilst upstairs, heard a car engine running in the distance. When she came back downstairs, the woman had gone.
The victim stepped outside to look for her but could not see her and went into the house. The victim then walked back to the door and the woman was there again. The victim gave her the phone number and the woman left.
Around 3.10pm, the mother left the house to pick up children from school leaving the 16 year-old in the house. A few minutes later, there was another knock on the door. The girl opened the door and a man entered and pushed her into the toilet.
The girl then saw the woman from earlier and another person go past and up the stairs.
The girl struggled with the man and after a few minutes the three offenders left.
After looking around the house the girl found that jewellery had been taken from her mother’s wardrobe.
The offenders are aged between 16 and 18 years, and described as being of Asian origin, possibly Pakistan or Indian.
The woman has dark brown skin, is 5ft 5ins, slim, with brown wavy hair tied up and a fringe.
She was wearing brown high-heels, loose black trousers, a white and green striped T-shirt and a waist length leather jacket with hood.
The man is 5ft 7ins, slim, with hazel eyes and light brown skin. He was wearing a black hood with gold writing on the front, and he has a moustache.
PC Gemma Robinson, from Aylesbury police station, said: “This is a calculated incident and I am keen to bring those responsible to justice.
“Anyone who may have noticed a suspicious vehicle or people who fit the above description at the time of the incident should contact police.”
Anyone with any information should contact PC Robinson via the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number, 0845 8 505 505.
