Officers investigating a distraction burglary of an elderly couple in Long Eaton want to speak to the man pictured in connection with the incident.
The couple, who are aged in their late 70s and early 80s, answered the door of their flat, on Kirkwhite Avenue, at around 5.20pm on Wednesday 4 November.
A man was at the door claiming to be from Neighbourhood Watch, who then pushed his way in and snatched a wallet from the elderly man, which contained cash and bank cards.
As he snatched the wallet there was a struggle between the victim and the man, and the victim ended up being pulled to the floor.
He then tried to leave and as he did he pushed the elderly woman out of the way, and she also fell to the floor.
The man is described as being white, around 5ft 8ins tall and in his 20s or 30s.
Since the incident officers have been following a number of lines of enquiry and are now appealing for help identifying the man pictured.
While the image is not of the best quality it is hoped someone recognises the clothing and the description given above.
