AN elderly woman has been subjected to a bizarre but frightening ordeal by burglars who confronted her in her own home.

The victim discovered a man and a woman standing in her hallway at about 4.20pm on Saturday afternoon at her home in Elizabeth Way, Eye.

She spoke briefly to the pair before the female kissed her on the cheek and they walked out of the house through the front door.
