The suspects ran off towards Clewers Lane, and police believe they arrived and left the area in a small blue car.

A spokesman from Hampshire Constabulary said: ‘The two women are described as white women in their mid 20s, both around 5ft 3in tall with slim builds, wearing white face masks, and spoke with an Eastern European accent.

‘One of the women had short neck length dark brown hair.

‘Were you in the area at the time? Perhaps you saw two women matching this description in the area, or have doorbell/dash cam footage that may have captured them?’

Anyone with information is asked to phone the police on 101 and quote reference number 44210267373.
