AN ELDERLY man was swindled by two conmen in Chipping Norton.
He was visited by the men at his home in West Street at about 4pm last Monday.
The conmen posed as cleaning products salesman before entering the man’s home and stealing cash from his kitchen, as well as his passport.
Police are investigating and have appealed for witnesses.
The two men are both described as white, with short dark hair and in their 30s. The first was about 6ft tall and wore grey trousers and a blue jacket.

Their visit had followed a previous one by another white salesman who was roughly 30 and 5ft 8in tall. He was wearing a blue cap and grey trousers with a dark leather jacket.
Pc Steven Bates, of Witney police, said: “We are appealing for any witnesses that may have seen these men going door to door in the Chipping Norton area or any suspicious behavior or activity.”
