Portsmouth, Va. - Police in Portsmouth need you to take action against crime.

Home surveillance cameras captured two people creeping around a house on River Shore Road Tuesday night.

The two were wearing masks completely covering their head and faces.

As they creep up to the back door, one waits in the back while the other peeks through the window before attempting to break into the home by kicking the door repeatedly.

The two men quickly run off after making their way into the home.

But instead of living in fear, home owners are taking action to find the criminals.

If you recognize either of the people in this surveillance video, take action and call the Crime Line at 1-888-lock-u-up.
