HEARTLESS thieves burgled a woman’s home as she had an epileptic fit.

Sometime between 2.30pm and 4pm, on Saturday, two men opened the front door of a home on Coral Grove, Leigh.

The victim was having a fit, when the men walked into the lounge, and stole cigarettes, a purse and a mobile phone. They walked off in an unknown direction.

There is no description of the men.

Police Constable Wayne Warner based at Leigh Police Station said: “Although the incident did not cause the woman to have a fit, the men would have clearly seen her having one and chose not to come to her aid.”
