Police appeal after elderly woman is confronted in her Dudley home by intruder
Police have launched an investigation after an elderly lady was woken up by an intruder as she slept in her bed at her Dudley home.
The 93-year-old woman was disturbed by the burglar, who’d broken into her home in Parkes Hall Road, Dudley through a window around 2.30am yesterday morning (Monday 14 August).
The intruder pushed her back down into the bed and demanded to know where she kept her money. He then stole cash and jewellery before escaping.
Temporary Detective Inspector Ade George from Force CID, said: “This was a terrifying experience for a very vulnerable and elderly lady. Fortunately she wasn’t physically injured, but she remains very shaken by what happened. Police enquiries are on-going to trace the man who did this and I would appeal for anyone who has information or anyone in the Parkes Hall Road area early yesterday morning, who may have seen anything, to contact police on 101."
The man is described as white, thin build with dark stubble and wore a dark hoody.
Local officers have stepped up reassurance patrols in the area
