A PET has foiled would-be burglars in Bognor Regis.

Police have appealed for witnesses to the attempted burglary at a property in Sherwood Road at 2.45pm on Tuesday, February 18.

Two men broke through the property’s front door whilst the woman who lives there was at home.

But the suspects got no further into the house and swiftly fled empty handed when the owner’s dog chased after them.

The first suspect is described as a white man, aged in his mid 20s, 6ft tall and of thin build with short dark hair.

He was wearing a mid to dark grey tracksuit trousers and a charcoal grey hoody.

The second suspect was also white, aged in his mid 20s, slightly shorter than the first and of medium to tubby build.

His hair was short and mousey coloured and he was wearing dark blue tracksuit.

Detective Constable Gavin Percival said: “Any witness or anyone else with information is asked to call 101 or email quoting serial 0844 of 18/2.

“Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
