POLICE have launched a search for two men believed to have broken into a house in Redcliffe Road in Torquay.
The police helicopter was seen flying over the St Marychurch area on Tuesday afternoon after two suspects were seen fleeing the scene.
Police ground units were also called to the scene at about 2pm.
The incident is ongoing.
Police are hunting for two men. One is described as wearing a grey hoody and the other a rusty coloured one. Both are thought to be aged in their 20s.
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting crime log 395.
The house in Redcliffe Road is close to one which has recently been in the headlines as coastal erosion causes it to slip towards the sea.
