We are appealing for information and CCTV footage following a report of a burglary in West Derby on the evening of Sunday 28 August.
At around 9.50pm it was reported that a man had broken into a house on St James Close and a number of items were reportedly stolen during the break-in including a purse with bank cards, prescription glasses and jewellery.
No one was injured during the incident.
Police attended the property and an investigation is now underway including obtaining CCTV and doorbell footage.
Detective Inspector Alan Nuttall said: “This was a very distressing experience for the family who were left in a state of shock.
“Burglaries can have a massive impact on the person and families affected as they have had their home invaded which is an awful experience to go through, and can often have a massive and long-lasting impact on victims.
“We encourage people to come forward if you know anything about the burglary and urge residents around Mill Lane and surrounding area to check their CCTV and doorbell footage to see if you have captured any suspicious activity from the night between 9pm and 11pm. We’ll act on all information provided.
“Burglary offences have decreased year on year across Merseyside thanks largely to Operation Castle, an operation targeted at reducing burglaries, bringing offenders to justice, and ultimately sparing residents the anguish of being a victim of burglary.”
