Police have released a CCTV image of two people they would like to speak to in connection with a burglary attempt at a block of flats in Southampton.
Between 2.40am and 3.10am on Friday, January 13, a window was prised open at the rear of the flats on St Mary Street.
A man then tried to climb in, but left the scene when he was disturbed.
He was reported to have fled the area with a woman who had been stood nearby.
The man has been described as white, tall, slim to medium build, with receding hair and some sort of facial hair, possibly a thin beard. He was described as wearing a tracksuit.
The woman he left the area with has been described as wearing a tracksuit with the hood up.
Officers would like to identify the two people in the image as they may have information to assist the investigation.
Police are also keen to trace a taxi driver who drove through the area at this time, as the driver may have witnessed something, and would like to speak to anyone who saw two people acting suspiciously in the area at this time.
PC Amanda Shearsby said: “Did you see anything strange in St Mary Street at this time, or a man and woman acting in an unusual way in the early hours of the morning?
“If you have any information that could help, please call us on 101.
“In addition, we would like to identify the two people in the CCTV image as they may have important information. The image is dark, but if you recognise the clothing or can identify these people, or if you believe this may be you in the image, please call police.
“We would also like to speak to a taxi driver who drove through the area at this time. If you believe this was you then please contact us, as we would like to establish if there is anything you may have seen that could assist us.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Shearsby on 101, quoting 44170016680, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
