Police are looking for information after an attempted distraction burglary.

A vulnerable woman living in Belle Vue Estate answered her door to a man claiming to need to borrow a pen in an attempt to enter her home on March 13.

A similar incident took place on March 8 in Crewys Road when a man entered the home of an elderly woman and stole a handbag having claimed she had a problem with her gas meter.

The suspect is described as a white male of medium build, 5 ft 6 in tall, aged around 60 years old and with a small grey or white moustache.

Police have released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in connect with the offences, which they believe to be linked.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, tweet at @MetCC or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
