York Police has released CCTV footage to help find someone who broke into a residential property and stole personal possessions.
The North Yorkshire Police department would like to speak to the person in the images – a man with a brown beard wearing a black hoody with red and white stripes on the shoulders – as they believe he has information regarding the case.
In the early hours of Friday May 27th 2022, someone entered a home on Kitchener Street in York. They took several personal items, which had significance to the victim, as well as expensive electronic devices.
“Anyone with any information is asked to email Eleanor.email@example.com or call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Eleanor Boulton,” the statement read.
Any witnesses or people with information should quote reference number 12220090656 when calling.
This comes after the police revealed a man who robbed a shop in Scarborough with a knife has been sentenced for six years.
Earlier this month, Nathan Christopher Stone, pleaded guilty to robbery and possession of a bladed article in a public place at York Crown Court.
The 28-year-old entered Manor Road Stores at 1715 on March 30th 2022 wearing a hooded top and a surgical mask to disguise his face.
Holding a knife, he threatened the store assistant and demanded she opened the till. After retrieving cash, he ran away from the shop.
Detective constable Steve Monty led the investigation, saying not only did Mr Stone scare the shop worker when approaching her with a knife, he also “created real fear in the wider Scarborough community while he was being tracked by the police”.
