Milton Keynes police are appealing for witnesses to a number of attempted burglaries.
Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a property was targeted in Mortons Fork, Blue Bridge.
At 7.45am on Friday, April 4, in Mortons Fork, Blue Bridge, a victim heard the door bell ring - she looked out of the window to see who was at the door and a little while later she heard the door being rocked back and forth in the frame.
The victim’s husband shouted and the offenders ran away.
The first offender was a white man in his early 20s, of a slim build, around 5ft 10ins. He was wearing a light grey hooded top and a grey woolly hat.
The second offender was a woman in her early twenties, of a medium build, around 5ft 6ins. She was wearing a dark grey hooded top and was pushing a pushchair.
Other recent attempted burglaries include:
* Newton Road, Bletchley, between 12pm and 1.30pm, on Tuesday, April 8, offenders unsuccessfully attempted to gain entry by forcing a rear window and also forcing a rear door.
* Blackthorn Grove, Woburn Sands, between Friday and Monday, April 4 and 7, would-be thieves attempted to gain entry to a rear sliding door, leaving tool marks on the frame.
* Queensbury Lane, Monkston Park, at 8.25am on Saturday, April 5, offenders attempted to gain entry by smashing a rear window of the property. It is believed the offenders were disturbed by a neighbour who heard banging at this time.
Three people were seen running out of the garden and closed the gate. They ran along the back road. One was in a grey hooded top with a white Adidas stripe down the side, the other two had dark coloured hooded tops. All had the hoods up.
A black VW Golf was seen leaving the area at this time at speed.
