A suspect has appeared in court after reports a man walked into a woman’s home twice while uninvited.
The alleged burglary offences happened at an address in Clifton on 22 October and 4 November 2023.
The victim was at home on the afternoon of 22 October when she heard her dogs barking.
When she went to investigate, she was shocked to see a man stood in the porch of her house.
The man left after reportedly asking the victim if she could change some money for him and asking for a cigarette.
The woman was at home again on the night of 4 November when she heard her dogs barking again.
She went on to find a man stood in her porch who asked her for money and a cigarette before he left, slamming the door behind him.
Following inquiries, police arrested 43-year-old Paul Tainton in the Clifton area on the night of 4 November and he was subsequently charged.
Tainton, of Lanthwaite Close, Clifton, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday 6 November 2023 charged with two counts of burglary.
He was remanded in custody and is next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 4 December 2023.
Detective Constable Joseph Gayton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Preventing and driving down burglary remains a priority for the force and, as shown in this case, we will investigate reports and relentlessly pursue those suspected to be responsible for this sort of upsetting criminality in our communities.”
