The home of a 90-year-old woman in Walberton has been broken into.

Someone reportedly used a stone to smash the glass in the kitchen door at the address in Prime Close on Saturday night (April, 8) around 8.45pm.

The elderly victim was home at the time and noticed a muddy footprint on her kitchen floor as she went out to see what the noise was.

Nothing was stolen during the break-in, likely due to the fact the intruders were disturbed by the homeowner.

Police want to hear from anyone in the area at the time who heard anything suspicious.
