Police are investigating two ‘similar’ burglaries that took place in the same stretch of road in Camberwell just over a week apart.
On both occasions flats above shops were targeted. The first was reported on Friday, March 26, between 1pm and 4.30pm in a flat on Camberwell Green.
Police say it is similar to another incident around a week later on Sunday, April 4, when a man forced entry into a flat in Camberwell Road – through a communal door and flat door – and attempted to steal electrical items.
After the flat’s residents, who were home at the time, realised what was happening they confronted the suspect and were then assaulted before he made off from the scene.
Anyone with information should call 101.
