A BELBROUGHTON resident opened their bedroom door last week to find a man in a balaclava in their hallway.

The resident heard a noise on Friday afternoon (September 16) and opened the bedroom door to investigate.

A man in a black balaclava then shouted "there's someone here" before running down the stairs and out of the house.

The man is thought to have broken in through the glazed patio door, which had been smashed.

The break-in took place on Newtown Lane between 2.35pm and 2.40pm.

Anyone with information is urged to call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting crime number 0469s.
