Detective Constable Dionne Love, who is leading the investigation, said: “This was a terrifying incident for a vulnerable victim who was essentially trapped in their house while a man searched for things to take.

“It is deplorable to think someone would do this and we are working hard to establish the circumstances of what happened so we can take appropriate action against the person responsible.

“If you recognise the man pictured, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us as we feel he may have information that could help our investigation.

“Alternatively, if you have any information on what happened, please contact us as well. Anything you have, no matter how insignificant a detail you think it is, could go a long way to helping us solve who did this.”

Anyone with any information should contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 968 of 30 May 2021.
