CCTV appeal after attempted burglaries in Newcastle.

Around 7pm on Wednesday, November 23, a man knocked on the door of an elderly resident in Hanover Close in Chapel House.

When the homeowner came to the door the man tried to force his way into the property however the occupant punched him in the face and shut the door on him. The man then left empty handed.

Enquiries into the incident established that a very similar attempt happened in the area around the same time and again the man had been unable to gain access into any homes.

Officers are releasing CCTV images of a man who was in the area at the time of the incidents and who might have information that could help with enquiries.

Anyone who recognises him is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference number 893 23/11/16.
