E-fit of man wanted in connection with attempted burglary
9:21am Friday 17th August 2012 in News
DETECTIVES have released an e-fit of a man spotted trying to climb through the bathroom window of a house in Prenton.
The 51-year-old resident was in the kitchen of his house in Durley Drive on the morning of May 29 when he saw a man drop down from the roof into his garden yard.
When challenged the man claimed he had been looking for his football and walked off down Durley Drive towards Woodchurch Road.
The resident went home to call the police and noticed that his wheelie bin had been climbed on and an upstairs window opened.
Detectives are treating this incident as an attempted burglary and are appealing for anyone who knows anyone who resembles the man in the e-fit or saw anything suspicious in Durley Drive that day to contact them.
Detective Constable Andy Young from Birkenhead CID, said: "The suspect is believed to have climbed onto an extension roof at the back of the house and open the bathroom window to peer inside.
"Fortunately nothing was stolen but the homeowner has been left angry that someone could do this and I would urge anyone with information to contact the police or Crimestoppers."
The man is described as being white, 5ft 7ins tall, with short, mousey-brown hair and was wearing grey jogging bottoms, a grey hooded top, red shirt and black trainers.
Call Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
