A PATTERSON Lakes couple are on edge after thieves made desperate attempts to force open their front door on consecutive nights, about 7pm, Thursday and Friday 28 and 29 June.
Police were told the two men continually banged and kicked the sturdy front door in Salmon Bay without success.
They tried to wrench the door handle, and made several attempts to open it via a keypad. Two expensive cars in the driveway may have been their targets.
One man was heard to say, “Keep on looking; keep on looking”.
Police said they may have approached the property from the rear waterway.
