A mum says she and her teenage daughter are “living in fear” after her property was broken into in the latest in a spate of incidents.
Forty-nine-year-old Sharon Andrews of Finavon Street, Fintry, said staying in her home of nearly four years has become a “nightmare” after her living room window was forced in while she was in the property.
Sharon said that she fears she and her daughter Katie, 17, are being targeted deliberately.
The latest incident, which took place earlier this month, happened after all the windows of her property were smashed last year.
The mum-of-two said she and Katie are so worried about something happening again, they are now sleeping in shifts in the living room.
She said: “This has been the worst time of my life living in this address.
“Last week, the window was badly damaged in the living room while we were inside the property and it happened in broad daylight.
“We’ve had issues in May last year when all the windows were smashed in with bricks.”
Sharon said that there was an accidental fire at the properly last year – but before she and her daughter had moved back in, someone broke in and stole items including jewellery.
She said: “We had forensic officers here at the time checking for prints after the break-in.
“It was all fine when we moved in to this property but after six months or so it became a living nightmare.
“My daughter suffers from depression and anxiety as a result and she’s terrified to even walk through the house on her own.”
She added: “We are living in fear in our own home. We are sleeping in shifts in our living room just now.
“When we called the police regarding the latest incident on July 6, two police officers arrived and then a third arrived with a sniffer dog to check the local area.
“I’m terrified the person who has caused all this harm will strike again – we’ve also had a string of abusive messages on social media and the police are aware of the situation.
“At this moment in time, we are in the process of trying to leave this address because of everything that has happened.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Officers attended a property in the Finavon Street area of Dundee on Friday July 6 following concerns raised by a local resident.”
