Detectives in Brent have released CCTV footage of a man they would like to speak to in connection with a residential burglary in Mapesbury Road last month.

Police were called to the address shortly after 2pm on Tuesday, February 7.

As the occupant slept upstairs, CCTV footage captured a man hanging around outside the property.

After snacking on something to eat, he could then be seen sliding the patio door off its track and entering the ground floor.

Once inside, the suspect rummaged around for belongings and made off with a laptop, two briefcases and five bottles of alcohol.

He is described as a black man wearing a distinctive camouflage baseball cap with the word “PARIS” written on it in white.

The suspect also was also clad in a black hooded jacket and camouflage-style trousers with a white handkerchief in his back pocket.
