This is an image of the man who police believe committed a 'despicable' burglary in Bridlington.

An e-fit of a man officers want to talk to in connection with the incident has been released this morning.

It comes after an 85-year-old woman was burgled while she was sitting at home in St Mary's Crescent at around 2.30pm on Friday, June 8.

A man had smashed a key safe, then came into her property through a back door.

He demanded the woman’s handbag which contained cash, a bank card, and a bus pass before he ran out with it. The 85-year-old was left very shaken but wasn’t hurt.

The suspect has been described as white, between 5ft 5ins and 5ft 9ins tall, thin, with dark hair and unshaven. He was wearing dark clothes.

PC Darren Banks from Bridlington CID said: “We are very keen to find the man responsible for this. These kinds of crimes against elderly people - who are some of the most vulnerable in our society - are despicable.

“Thankfully in this case the victim wasn’t injured but she was understandably distressed after the man had come into her home.

“We are appealing for anyone who may know this individual to come forward with information about his whereabouts.”

Anyone who thinks they recognise the man can call 101, quoting reference 16/61953/18.
