A courageous 72-year-old woman scared off a burglar from her home by shouting at him to get out. The woman left her home in Walsall Road, Portsmouth for 10 minutes to go out to her local shop. When she returned at 7pm on Thursday she found a man in her home. She shouted at him and he ran away.
Nothing was taken. Detective Constable Les Leithes said: “At this time of the evening the local park, Tamworth Park, would have been busy with dog walkers and young children with parents. Did you see anyone acting suspiciously, running through the park or out onto Langstone Road?"
