Police Scotland are currently searching for a man and a woman suspected of forced entry and theft in Galashiels.
The incident occurred on Thursday, at an address on the town's Croft Street.
The homeowner initially opened the door to the two suspects, before they forced their way in and stole money and a bankcard.
The male suspect is described as white, around 6ft tall, with short black hair and facial hair.
The female suspect is described as white, 5ft 6ins tall, around 35 years old, with light brown shoulder length hair.
“The homeowner did not suffer any physical harm during this incident but it has left him quite badly shaken.
“Local officers are carrying out extensive enquiries to trace both suspects and I would ask anyone who has any information that can assist with our ongoing investigation.”
Four housebreaking incidents happened in Newcastleton last night, which were reported between the hours of 2am and 10am.
Police Scotland are looking for two male suspects, both of athletic build, which officers say was a key factor in the pair exiting the buildings quickly.
Gardening equipment was stolen from two of the properties targeted, with the items stolen from one property believed to be worth a three-figure-sum.
“The number of break-ins in this area within a short space of time leads us to believe these incidents are linked.
“Anyone with information about these incidents, or saw anything suspicious in the area last night, is asked to contact police immediately.”
A chilly start to a mostly dry and bright Friday, although some heavy showers will spread eastwards through the day.
