AN ELDERLY couple have been the victims of a series of terrifying raids by blatant burglars who stole a car and keys before coming back in the night and trying to get in again.

The bizarre and terrifying attacks on the Farnham Lane home in Slough of a 92-year-old man and an 89-year-old woman began on Friday, February 1 between midnight and 11.45am.

The raiders got in through a rear window and stole money. They returned on Tuesday, February 5 between 6.30pm and 7.30pm - getting in through an open back door and stealing a lap top, mobile phone and keys to the property as well as car keys, before making off in the car.

They are understood to have returned in the stolen car at 3am Wednesday morning (February 6) and tried to use the keys to get in again. But the property had been secured and the raiders were disturbed - they escaped leaving the stolen car behind.

The elderly couple were at home each time the burglars attacked and investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Mark Barnikel from the Slough Investigation Hub, said: “I am appealing for any witnesses who may have seen or heard anything unusual at the time of these incidents.

“The victims have been left shaken following the stress and worry that these incidents have caused.”
