Burglars broke into the English country home of rocker and reality &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/world/2002/06/22/30926.html ' target=_blank>TV star Ozzy Osbourne on Monday and stole a large amount of jewelry, police said.
They used a ladder to climb through a first floor window at the Osbourne's mansion at Chalfont St Peter in Buckinghamshire, just north of London, police said.
"The disturbance woke the residents and a man grabbed one of the &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/fun/2002/11/01/39018.html ' target=_blank>burglars," a police spokeswoman said, without saying if the man in question was Ozzy. "The offender eventually managed to struggle free and then jumped out of the window and made off", informs Reuters.
According to the ABC News, Ozzy and his wife are staying at the mansion while she appears on the British TV talent show "The X-Factor."
Their children were not in the house at the time. His daughter, Kelly, was in Vancouver, Canada, and his son, Jack, was in Los Angeles, police said.
One of the burglars wore a ski mask and used a ladder to climb into the second-floor room of the mansion where a "large amount of jewelry" was stolen, police said.
Both burglars apparently escaped in a van, and the man who jumped was probably injured by the fall, police said.
