North Yorkshire Police say a man’s now been arrested over a series of burglaries at a man’s home in Selby, after they released CCTV footage earlier.
Police say man, aged 79, was burgled four times in less than five months.
A man went into the elderly man’s house on Turnham Lane in Cliffe, Selby, while he was asleep upstairs at 12.27am on 16 September 2019.
PC Tony Morton, North Yorkshire Police:
“It is absolutely appalling that this vulnerable elderly man has been targeted in his home four times since April this year.
There were two burglaries as recently as August, where on both occasions the suspect has used the ATM at Sainsbury’s in Selby to take out cash from the victim’s account.
The victim is a 79 year old man who lives on his own. He is partially deaf and throughout this latest burglary he was asleep upstairs.
We remain determined to do everything we can to bring those responsible for these offences to justice and we are asking for the public’s help to identify this burglar to hopefully prevent a further occurrence.”
Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact the police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Anthony Morton.
