Attempted burglary in Lessing St

Hi all,

I interrupted an attempted burglary on Lessing St today, around 5pm. Luckily nothing had been taken from the flat upstairs as I believe I disturbed the guy (he walked right past me very quickly as I was trying to get into our front door). However, he had managed to kick in our neighbour’s door to gain access to his property.

Please keep your deadlocks on your doors!!

The guy was a tall, black man (quite young - in his 20s) and was wearing a purple baseball cap. I’ve obviously called the police (who responded very quickly) and have been in touch with the owner of the flat upstairs.


Thanks for posting @Emily_Ray. Will keep an eye in Gabriel.


Glad nothing was taken @Emily_Ray , thanks for sharing we have to be vigilant.
