A man, who falsely claimed to be a police officer, demanded money from an elderly woman at a home in Lavenham.

The man entered a bungalow in Sudbury Road without being invited, on Wednesday, at about 4.50pm.

After claiming to be a police officer, he demanded money from the elderly resident.

He then proceeded into the bedroom of a bed-bound elderly man.

The woman phoned a relative, which prompted the suspect to leave.

No-one was hurt during the incident, and nothing was reported stolen in the attempted burglary.

Homeowners are reminded to request a police officer’s identification number and police force at the door.

Anyone with information should contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101, quoting crime reference 37/3158/19.
