Octogenarian disturbs burglars in Potters Bar

TWO burglars escaped empty-handed after an 88-year-old woman disturbed them during a raid on her home.

The men fled the property, in Hatfield Road, Potters Bar, when the octogenarian interrupted them as they combed her property for valuables.

Police believe that one of the crooks forced open the rear door of the property before letting his accomplice in through the front door.

They then searched the property but left with nothing after they were disturbed.

The raid took place between 1.50pm and 2.10pm on Thursday.
