Police investigating two home burglaries in which vulnerable victims were targeted want to speak to this man.

The first incident took place on 10 January 2024 when an intruder barged his way into a woman’s home in Mapperley.

The victim, who has learning difficulties, was pushed out the way when she answered her door. The offender demanded money before he went upstairs and rummaged through her belongings.

Police are also investigating an incident on 12 January when an elderly man returned home to find his property had been ransacked.

The address, in Forest Fields, was broken into by intruders who gained access by smashing a window.

Officers were called around 3.10pm and the victim reported several items had been taken.

Officers have been studying CCTV in the area, among other local inquiries, and are now in a position to release this image of a man who they believe could have important information.

Police Constable Mia Furr, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Both these victims are vulnerable and have understandably been shaken by these break-ins.

“Burglary is a horrible, invasive crime and we are determined to track down those responsible.

“We want to speak to the individual pictured urgently. If you know him please get in touch.

“If you have any other information, or CCTV, dash-cam or doorbell footage, relating to either incident please contact officers.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 140 of 10 January 2024 or 457 of 12 January. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
