A woman who lives on Brae Avenue was said to have been left "shaken" after the incident when a man turned up at her home, on March 25, to ask if she would like her drive paving.

She said no and he left - but returned about half an hour to ask aagain.

She again said no, but a second man then appeared and pushed her over into the hallway. He then tried to remove her gold necklace before both men ran of towards an alleyway at the top of the road.
