A series of attempted burglaries in Milton Keynes has pushed Thames Valley Police to appeal for witnesses.

At about 12.35am on April 23, the victim was walking on Coltsfoot Place, Conniburrow, when she saw a man trying to open the window of her home.

She whistled at him to get his attention and as she approached, he walked down the unlit alleyway next to the property.

The victim contacted the police, who searched the area but no offender was found.

The offender was a black man with short dark hair, around 6ft tall and of medium build. He was wearing a short sleeved grey top and dark coloured trousers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigating officer Det Con Samantha Reynolds on 101.

> Between 9.30pm on Friday, April 25 and 6am on Saturday 26 April, offenders entered the back garden of a property in Oxman Lane, Greenleys, and tried to force open the rear door to the house.

They were unsuccessful and no entry was gained.
