POLICE are hunting two men suspected of breaking 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.
The last potential sighting was near the model village when it was reported they were running towards the Oddicombe beach area.
Police ground units were also sent to the street at about 2pm. It is believed a man spotted the two suspects in a house and called the police. He then confronted the two suspects before they ran away.
Police confirmed there had so far been no arrests and they were looking for witnesses.
One suspect is described as wearing a grey hoodie and the other a rust-coloured one. Both are thought to be in their 20s.
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting crime log 395.
