Police in Cardiff are appealing for information after a man was confronted by a burglar carrying a knife after seeing him jump into a neighbouring garden.
The neighbour noticed an unknown man jump over a garden wall in Hurdford Place at around 11am on Friday, May 11.
When he went to investigate he was suddenly met by the man aggressively brandishing a six-inch knife.
The suspect drove off in a silver Audi A3 empty handed after failing to get into the house.
The car had a cloned number plate and distinctive alloy wheels, according to a statement by South Wales Police.
It was seen travelling down Hurdford Place to the junction of Gwern-Rhuddi Road.
