Intruders attempted to break into two homes in Horsham, police have said.
Police said an attempt was made to try and gain access to a home in Holbrook School Lane on Tuesday (May 31).
Damage was caused to the front door but no entry was gained.
Officers said the owner alerted a neighbour who discovered a similar attempt had been made on his property.
A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “It is thought that the attempts may have been made that day, but given the small amount of damage, it may not have been noticed previously.
Anyone with information is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting serial 1416 of 31/05.
