Would-be fraudsters target elderly woman

AN elderly woman was asked to hand over money to a stranger who had entered her home.

The incident happened at a house in Shepherds Lane, Caversham Heights, early on Friday evening.

The man told the victim, who is in her nineties, that he needed cash to carry out work on her house but she didn’t give him any.

He then left with another man, who had been waiting outside, in a white transit-style vehicle, with a ladder and large tube on the roof.

Police appealed to anyone with information to call them on 101.
