A 33-year-old man, who was at home at the time, heard their voices and challenged the intruders. The teenagers ran off. They were described as being in their mid to late teens and wearing dark clothing.

A further incident took place where three teenagers took a bicycle from the porch of a property in New Mills Road, Hayfield. The owner and another member of the public chased after the trio and the bike was abandoned.
