'I would urge anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area at the time of the burglary to contact police.'
People in the village said they had seen police vehicles at the house, but were shocked to learn of the crime.
One man said: 'There were lots of police cars there on Monday night, but we didn't know why until now. I hope that the man was not hurt.
'It's a very unassuming bungalow where it happened. It's not the sort of thing we are used to in Little Melton.'
