Goldalming pair held over Surrey distraction burglary

Two people have been arrested on suspicion of a distraction burglary at the home of a 93-year-old Surrey woman.

Surrey Police said a man and a woman tricked their way into the victim's home in Ashtead on 15 May and stole her handbag.

Officers said the woman told the victim she was pregnant, felt faint and needed a glass of water.

The arrested pair, both aged 19 and from Godalming, have been bailed until 18 July.
