The incident took place shortly before 11pm last night (Sunday) at the garage of a property in Dorking Walk with the offenders forcing the door open, causing a loud bang.
This alerted the victim, who saw a group of four men running away from the scene.
They are all described as white and were wearing dark hooded tops and tracksuit bottoms.
Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who may have any information regarding it.
