Officers are appealing for any witnesses to suspicious behaviour in the early hours of this morning (6 June) following an aggravated burglary.
Police were called to Stirling Court, Stafford at around 1:40am after a man broke into an address, threatened the resident and then fled the scene. Officers believe that nothing was stolen from the address.
The suspect is described as a man, average height and build, wearing a dark hoodie, cotton bottoms, a black face mask and latex gloves.
Detectives investigating the incident are now hoping to find out if anyone witnessed a man in the local area acting suspiciously or fitting that description around that time. Officers are making local enquiries and viewing any available CCTV for further information or sightings.
Officer in the case Detective Constable Julie Coole said: “We will be working hard to identify the suspect and ensure this crime is not repeated. However, local residents are reminded to keep their property secure by making sure doors and windows are locked overnight and when you are out, and ensuring any security lights or CCTV are switched on.”
Anyone with any information should message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter quoting incident number 51 of 6 June. Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
