A woman living in Somerset had a nasty surprise when they went into the bathroom of their home – and discovered a burglar clambering through their bathroom window.
The incident happened last week in Yeovil and police are now appealing for help to catch the would-be burglar and his friend.
Police said the unknown offender had climbed onto a low level roof at a residential property on the Monks Dale estate at around 7.45pm on Tuesday, October 6, and then tried to get into the house through a partially-opened bathroom window.
“They were interrupted by the occupant and fled the scene,” a police spokesperson said.
She issued a description of the burglar as well as of another man who is thought to have been with him.
