  1. Interesting that it was called an attempted burglary. I hope it was crimed as a burglary. Once the offender enters a building or any part thereof as a trespasser, with the intention to steal, inflict graciously bodily harm or damage, the offence is complete. Once in the porch, it’s a burglary. According to part 9(1)(a) of the 1968 Theft Act.
