CCTV images have been released of three men after a break-in when a woman woke to find two burglars in her bedroom.

The woman, 32, was woken as a mobile phone was taken from the bedside table of her Swansea home last Wednesday.

South Wales Police called it a "creeper" style burglary and think a third man was involved.

The images were taken from a nearby shop. Anyone with information can contact police in Swansea on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Police said the burglary occurred at a house on Llangyfelach Road at 2215 BST on 29 June.

The woman was alone when she was woken and confronted by two males, one of whom was standing a short distance away.

"This was a very frightening experience for this young lady who fortunately was not injured," said Det Cons Paul Howles, from Swansea Central CID.

"I would like to reassure the public that incidents of this nature are very few and far between," he added.
