Police in Jaywick are appealing for information about an attempted burglary and an attempted robbery of an elderly woman.
A teenage boy kicked open the front door of a property in Hillman Avenue at around midday on Tuesday September 1 but fled when he was disturbed by the 69-year-old victim. The suspect is described as white, around 5ft 6 or 7ins tall, with a slim build and wearing a pale fawn colour hoody.
On Saturday September 19 at around 11pm a man forced his way into the property and threatened the victim, demanding money. He then left empty-handed. Fortunately the victim was not injured but she was left feeling very shaken up. The suspect is described as aged in his mid twenties, around 6ft tall, clean shaven with a muscular build. He was wearing a similar top to the first suspect.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Dc Andy Dodd at Clacton CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
