Police are appealing for information following an aggravated burglary in Southampton.

Between 12.30pm and 1.05pm on Sunday, August 7, two men knocked on the door of an address on Caerleon Drive, Bitterne. A woman opened the door to them and they told her they were Jehovah's Witnesses.

One of the men then put a cloth over the woman’s mouth at the front door, forcing her to pass out. They then entered the house and stole a quantity of high value gold jewellery.

When the woman came round, the men had gone. The woman received medical attention but did not suffer any ongoing symptoms.

I am appealing for anyone with information about this incident to come forward. Do you live in the area, did anyone knock at your door claiming to be Jehovah's Witnesses? Did you see two smartly dressed men wandering around the area who could be connected to this incident?

As always, we would urge residents to be vigilant when opening their door to strangers. If you're unsure of who is at your door, use a door chain and do not open the door fully until you are satisfied they are a genuine caller.

I would urge anyone with information to get in touch with us as soon as possible.
