Appeal For Witnesses After Cheltenham Man Is Burgled After Falling Ill

Police from Cheltenham are appealing for witnesses after a man fell ill at his home and had his wallet stolen.

The 60-year-old man had been answering the door at his home in Lansdown Crescent, to an unknown female caller sometime during the evening of Friday, January 12, when he was taken ill and fell over.

The female caller told the man that she would phone for help and pushed the door before entering the living room.

Whilst in the house she did not make any calls but took a soft brown leather wallet containing 200 in cash as well as cards.

She stepped over the man on the way out leaving him on the floor.

The woman is described as white, approximately 5" 9, around 18-years-of-age, wearing light trousers and white trainers.

Anybody with any information is asked to call Gloucestershire Police on 0845 090 1234 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference 550 of January 12th.
