Night burglar wakes up sleeping residents in Harlesden

Police are appealing for witnesses after the occupants of a house in Harlesden woke up to find a burglar in their home.

The thief fled with a laptop from the address in Fairlight Avenue, but he dropped and damaged it on his way out.

A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and bailed to return in April.

The burglary took place on February 17 at 10pm but the details have been released today to appeal for witnesses to come forward.

DC Martina English, investigating officer, said: “Waking up to find someone in your house is frightening experience.
