POLICE have released further information after two young men broke into an elderly man’s home in Paganhill, Stroud earlier this week in broad daylight. 

At around 2.30pm on Wednesday, August 24 the males were seen trying to gain entry to the home through the front door, and then made their way around the side of the house.
