A HOMEOWNER tried to restrain a man who attempted to burgle his house in High Wycombe this week.

The owner of the house, in Clarendon Road, challenged the would-be burglar when he entered the property through a back door that had been left ajar.

He tried to tackle the man, but he managed to escape and run off in the direction of Guinions Road.

The incident happened at 2.30pm on Monday, July 21, with Thames Valley Police launching an appeal for witnesses.

Investigating officers describe the suspect as white, 5ft 6ins tall, of a stocky build, in his mid teens, with dark straight hair and dark eyes. He was wearing a two tone grey sweatshirt, with the arms being darker grey than the body, and dark trousers.

Anyone with information should contact PC Kimberly Barletta from High Wycombe police station on 101, or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Shame he couldn't hold onto him - but then again our limp legal system would no doubt have come to the robbers rescue
