Police in Fife are appealing for witnesses after a couple was robbed within their home in Methil.

The incident happened around 5pm on Sunday (September 25) at an address in Methil Brae.

A 30-year-old woman and 23-year-old man were within the property when two men forced entry and stole a four-figure sum of money from inside.

Both men then made off and the victims contacted police.

Local officers are now urging anyone who can assist with their inquiries to come forward.

The first suspect is described as white, 5ft 8in tall with a stocky build and wearing a black balaclava, black jacket and black trousers.

The second suspect is described as white, 5ft 8in tall with a stocky build and wearing a black balaclava and a red Adidas top with white stripes on the sleeves.

“Anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity in or around Methil Brae on Sunday evening is asked to contact police immediately.

“In addition, anyone who recognises the suspects should also get in touch.”
