Men target Good Samaritan in bogus dog hunt in Enfield Wash
Two men burgled a pensioner after he let them into his Enfield Wash home to search for their missing dog.
The men, both white and aged between 20 and 30 years old, targeted the 73-year-old man on Sunday, August 19, while he was home alone in Palmers Lane.
The man answered the door to the suspects between 1pm and 2.30pm, who claimed to have lost their dog and asked to search his garden.
The victim accepted, and allowed one man to use his home telephone, but tried to keep an eye on both men.
Once the suspects left, he realised they had stolen jewellery and £20 in cash.
The first man is described as clean shaven, approximately 5ft 11ins, of an average build with brown hair. He was wearing a dark green t-shirt and shorts.
The second man was 6ft, slim, with curly brown hair and is described as having stubble. He was wearing a black short-sleeved shirt and shorts.
Enfield Police are investigating the burglary and are reminding people to think before they open the door to strangers.
