A pair of teenage boys seen climbing on a Corby garage roof are thought to have returned to scrawl on a homeowner’s door after she had snapped a picture of them.

The two youths – both wearing glasses – had been standing on the roof of a garage in the Old Village when a resident took a photo of them.

They then returned to Dixon Walk at night and wrote on the front door of the house, causing criminal damage on Friday, April 1.

A spokesman for Northants Police said: “The incident took place between 11.20pm and 11.35pm on Friday, April 1, when two offenders approached a residential address and wrote on the front door.

“The first offender was white, aged about 15, slim and about 5ft 7. He was wearing a light-coloured jacket, dark coloured hooded top with the hood up, a baseball cap and glasses.

“The second offender was also white, aged about 15, slim and about 5ft 5. He was wearing a puffer jacket with the hood up, black Adidas tracksuit bottoms and a face mask. He also wore glasses.

“It’s believed this could be linked to an incident which happened a few days earlier when the occupant took a photo of two boys standing on top of a garage near to her property. This prompted the boys to knock on her door.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting incident number 22000196093.
