Police have released an e-fit of an offender who stole an elderly man’s wedding ring during burglary in Bletchley.

The image release relates to an incident where an 82-year-old victim was targeted while home alone in Middlesex Drive at about 8pm on April 4th.

The victim noticed a number of men in the rear of his property so picked up the landline phone to call for help. At this point, one of the offenders confronted him and pulled the phone cable out of the wall.

The group of three offenders then threatened the victim before pulling a gold chain from his neck and his wedding ring from his finger.

The offenders then also searched the rest of the house for about twenty minutes before leaving the property with a large amount of other items of jewellery.
