Police have warned students to keep valuables hidden, as two houses were targeted in the early hours of the morning on October 29th.
A house on Holyrood Avenue in Highfield had a rock thrown through the ground floor bedroom window between 3.30 and 4.00 am.
The 20 year old student was asleep in the room at the time, heard the glass smash and discovered his MacBook Pro had been stolen.
A house on Hartley Avenue was also targeted just minutes later, between 4.00 and 4.30 am. The four occupants were having a meal when they heard a noise, but did not investigate. Two occupants later returned to their bedrooms to find around £400.00 in Hong Kong dollars had been taken.
Students have been warned by the police to be vigilant under the circumstances, and to contact Shelley Ripley at Bitterne station on 101, should they have any information regarding these two incidents.
