Burglars who raided a house in Duston fled empty-handed after they discovered the owner was inside.
A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said the incident happened on Tuesday, July 1, at a house in Millway between 1.30pm and 2pm.
“Three men broke into a house, while the occupant was inside. Once the offenders realised there was somebody in the house, they left empty-handed,” the spokesman said.
Anybody who saw anything suspicious in the area at that time is asked to contact police.
Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 08000 555 111.
