Grays Farm woman wakes up to see masked man taking off with her handbag, cash and ID cards

A masked man managed to make off with close to $400 during a
burglary in spite of the homeowner having caught him in the house.

Reports say the police are investigating the incident in which a
Grays Farm woman complained that, at about 4 a.m., she had been
awakened by a tumbling sound.

When she opened her eyes, she saw a masked man, wearing a black
shirt, running out her front door with her black handbag, which
contained $375 and her ID cards. 

The matter was reported to the Grays Farm Police Station and a
search of the area was carried out for any suspicious person and the
stolen item – but without success.
