This man was photographed in Wallace Drive, Eaton Bray, on WednesdayThe picture, taken on Wednesday in Eaton Bray, shows a man in a blue cap and gloves apparently running.

Police said three men had set off an alarm at a property in Wallace Drive. The neighbour who took the photo was slapped across the face, police said.

The men drove away in a black Mercedes with stolen number plates on display.

Det Sgt Dale Mepstead said he wanted to speak to anyone who could identify the man in the photo or who witnessed the break-in, at about 14:20 BST.

"The neighbour was very brave to challenge these men and luckily she was not hurt during her ordeal," he said.

"The property belongs to an elderly person and it is possible that these men chose this address because they thought it belonged to a vulnerable member of the community and therefore an easy target."

Police said nothing was taken from the house.
