Detectives have released CCTV images of two males they want to speak to in connection with an attempted burglary in Runcorn.
The incident occurred in Heath Road South at around 4.40pm on Wednesday 11 March.
After breaking into a house, the offenders fled empty handed after being disturbed by an occupier.
Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing.
As part of their investigation detectives want to speak to the two males in the CCTV images.
They are appealing for anyone who recognises the males to get in touch.
It is believed that they may have links to the Rochdale area of Greater Manchester.
Detective Constable Ciara Murphy, of Runcorn Local Policing Unit, said: “We are determined to establish the identities of all those responsible for the attempted burglary and make them face the consequences of their actions.
“We believe that tracing and speaking to the two males in the CCTV images will help us as we endeavour to achieve those goals.
