OAP tied up in his home after challenging thieves in Milton Keynes


A pensioner’s hands and feet were tied up after he tried to challenge two men who were burgling his home.

The 65-year-old man was stumbled onto the floor when he was pushed by strangers as they stole jewellery and cash from his Hartfield Close home in Kents Hill.

It happened at around 12pm yesterday when the two offenders got into his house through an unsecure side door.

Thames Valley Police is now appealing for witnesses who can help trace the men.

Investigating officer, Det Con Vince Higgins from Milton Keynes Force CID, said: “This was a nasty incident in which the victim found two offenders in his home.

“When he challenged them he was pushed and then left tied up.

The offenders were two men, one white and one black. There is no further description available at this time.
