E-FIT pictures of two men have been released after an man's house was burgled on Monday.
Police said a man had knocked on the elderly man’s door, in Main Street, Forest Hill, between 8.45pm and 9pm and asked to see his back garden.
He said the victim’s dog had jumped over a gate, but while they surveyed the back of the property, a second man entered the house and was spotted running out by the old man shortly afterwards.
Both men then fled in a large black car. The homeowner found a gold-coloured pocket watch from Smiths of Witney, a pair of gold and pearl earrings, a gold necklace and a 1914 gold sovereign coin were missing from his house upstairs.
Those with information should call Thames Valley Police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
