5:08pm 11th December 2013

Detectives in York are appealing for information after an attempted burglary in the city which left the elderly victim distressed.

It occurred at 7.30am on Monday 9 December 2013, at a house on Fifth Avenue, when someone threw a brick through a window before leaving the scene.

The woman who lives at the house was not injured as a result of the incident.

Witnesses have given the description of a man in the Fifth Avenue area at the time. He is described as white, in his twenties, with a medium build and dark hair. He was wearing a checked lumberjack style jacket.

DC Graeme Bevington, of York CID, said: “Although the elderly woman who lives in the houses was not physically hurt during the incident, the experience naturally left her shaken and very upset.

“If you are the man who was seen in the area at the time of the incident and you are not responsible, I urge you to come forward so that I can eliminate you from my enquiries.

“I am keen to speak to anyone who saw someone acting suspiciously in the area or can help to identify the person responsible for this attempted burglary, and ask them to get in touch straight away.”

Anyone who can assist with this enquiry should contact York CID on 101, select option 2 and ask for Graeme Bevington. Alternatively, information can be emailed to

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference number 12130212661.
