Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a man wearing a balaclava broke into a house in Mildenhall.
The householder had heard loud banging at the back door and discovered the intruder. He shouted at the man, who ran out of the back door empty-handed. The offender is described as being over 6ft tall and was wearing a black woollen coat and black trousers. He spoke in a language believed to be eastern European. Two men were later seen wearing black woollen hats pulled over their faces driving a silver estate car from Wamil Way onto Queensway.
