Police have launched an investigation after an aggravated and attempted burglary in Hitchin's Old Hale Way last month.

It is reported that the three offenders entered an Old Hale Way property on the evening of Monday, January 29, shouting as they entered.

The victim shouted for them to leave the property, and they then left via an unknown direction.

Earlier in the month, another resident on the road was the victim of an attempted burglary, when they heard noises and found damage to the front door, but no entry was gained to the property.
