A man went into the kitchen and went through the cupboards, taking food, then made his way to the bedroom and showed the victim what he was taking. He then left the property as she was calling the police.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Kerry Hall based at Amersham police station, said: “This was a traumatic incident for the victim and her vulnerabilities were taken advantage of by Binfield.

“I hope the guilty verdict begins to give her some closure.

“Burglaries of this nature can be very distressing and I’d like to thank the victim for her support throughout the case.”

Binfield will be sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on 18 March.
