Police are appealing for information and witnesses following a burglary in Enfield.

At 18:30hrs on Monday, 22 September the suspect knocked on the door of the victim's house in Waterfall Road, N14 claiming to be a workman.

The suspect stated that his colleagues had damaged the victim's fence while working on the property that backed on to his garden. While inspecting the fence, another suspect entered the house and stole a number of items.

The fence was not damaged and the neighbours did not have any builders in.

The first suspect left the house on foot and was least seen turning right on to Chandos Road. He is described as a white man, aged approximately 35 years old with blond bushy hair. He was 6ft tall and of medium build. He was wearing a white shirt and dark-coloured trousers. He was also carrying a clipboard, paper and pen.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Enfield CID on 020 8345 4469 or via 101 quoting reference 5220743/14. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Crime prevention advice:

Officers would recommend that householders always ask callers for proof of identity. Genuine tradesmen should carry an identification card with their photograph on. Check this carefully. If you are unsure, telephone the company the caller claims to represent.

Beware of callers who attempt to distract you by claiming that they have seen something untoward in your rear garden or somewhere which may encourage you to leave your house - they may have an accomplice awaiting this distraction."
