A blind Scot is living in fear after two break-ins in six weeks at his home in Dundee.
Raiders took Frank Mearns' watch collection and a TV while he was out for a meal on Friday, June 11.
They struck again on 27 April at his flat in Lochee.
"I feel so insecure here, it's like I need to get out of this house because I'm honestly scared that this is going to keep happening to me," said Frank, who is registered blind and lacks almost all vision.
He said: "I'm sitting here with nothing now. I can't afford to replace the stuff that was stolen and I don't have home insurance or any of that stuff, I don't know about all of that.
"I'm not sure if they're targeting me because of my blindness, if that's it, I don't know.
"People around here know me and they do know that I'm blind, so it's a possibility.
"I live in the multis and there are people coming in and out of here all the time.
"I'm really worried about it because there's still that fear that they could come back.
"They took my personal watches and my TV set, they wrecked my DJ decks as well, totally ruined my whole flat."
Frank contacted the police about the first burglary, however when this was unsuccessful, he decided against reporting the second break-in.
He said: "I called them at about 8pm or 8.30pm after I got back and they didn't show up for ages, it took a while.
"I didn't bother to call them the second time, it just didn't feel worth it."
A Police Scotland spokesman said: "Around 10pm on Tuesday, 27 April, 2021, officers received report of a break-in at a property in Dundee.
"Inquiries into the incident are ongoing."
