Just before 1am on September 7th, two men entered a takeaway food store on Broadwater Avenue at Hope Island by smashing a glass door with a rock but left empty-handed.

Around 6am that morning the same men broke into another takeaway business located on Bermuda Street at Varsity Lakes, using a brick to smash their way through the door.
