Home raid scares victim into leaving town
7:30am Tuesday 24th September 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A WOMAN has been shaken so badly by burglars ransacking her home that she is determined to leave the area.
Katherine Black had her flat broken into on Monday between 5.30pm and 11.30pm and is planning on ending her tenancy agreement on the property she lives in.
“I want to leave. It has affected my life so much and I have noticed the town getting worse in the last six months,” she explained.
“I just can’t go back to the flat by myself. I’m not easily rattled and have never felt nervous about living alone before but now I just want to get out of the town.
“It just felt so fresh when I went in there, you could almost smell that somebody had been in my home.
“If I had been there or if there had have been kids in the house than you just never know what their intentions could have been.”
