The first burglary happened on Tuesday at about 4pm when a man walked into a property in Ivory Road through an unlocked front door.

The man was challenged by one of the householders and said he had been there to do repairs. The suspect then left the property and victims later found cash had been taken from the kitchen. The suspect is described as white, between 20 and 30 years old, with short brown hair and wearing a blue jacket.

The second incident happened about 20 minutes later in Spelman Road, near Unthank Road, when residents reported disturbing a man in their home. The suspect fled the scene empty handed after jumping over a garden fence to make his escape. Witnesses describe the suspect in this incident as being aged in his late teens or early 20s and wearing a blue top.

Police believe the incidents could be linked and are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed anything unusual in the areas on Tuesday afternoon.

Witnesses should contact Det Con Esther Dunn at Norwich CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
