A twelve year old boy returning home from school scared off two burglars in his home.
It happened in Sicklesmere at about 3.30pm yesterday afternoon.
The boy returned to his home in Sudbury Road. As he walked through the back door he saw two men inside his home.
They saw him and ran off.
It was discovered that the house had been broken into and some items of jewellery had been stolen from inside.
The first man is described as being white, 5ft 7ins to 5ft 9ins inches tall, of average build and in his mid 20s. He was of scruffy appearance and wore dark clothing.
The second man was also white of a similar age, height and build.
Police are very keen to hear from anyone who was in the area and saw any suspicious activity in the area.
Calls should be made to DS Tamlyn Burgess at Bury St Edmunds CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
