Community Policing Sergeant Stephen Granger said: “I am appealing for people in the area to think back to yesterday, did you notice anything suspicious or see the suspects run off?

“The lady returning home has obviously disturbed the two men and they have fled empty-handed.

“It’s imperative we trace them and I would urge anyone with any information of this crime to contact us, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please pass it on.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 2354 of Tuesday, December, 15.
