Burglars tried to break into a house in Nuthall while the residents were asleep in the front room.
The intruders climbed over a wall to get into the garden before using a brick to try and smash a glass pane on the garage door.
They were unsuccessful due to it being laminataed, so tried to do the same to the rear utility room door. The outer pane smashed, but the inner pane remained intact so no entry was gained.
The incident happened in Willesden Green on February 18 between 4.30pm and 6.45pm.
If you saw anything call 101.
