EFIT: Do you recognise this burglar who forced entry into 87 year-old's home?
POLICE are hunting a man who allegedly pushed an elderly woman to the ground during a burglary.
An e-fit picture of the man officers would like to speak to has been released.
It is believed a man forced entry into an address in Greenhill and stole a quantity of cash from a drawer in a bedroom.
The man was then confronted by the 87-year-old victim, who he pushed to the ground before escaping, police said.
Police constable Mike Green, of Weymouth Police, said: "Following extensive enquiries I am now able to release an e-fit of the man responsible and I am appealing for anyone who recognises him to contact Dorset Police as soon as possible.
"I would also like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed a man acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the incident to get in touch.
"Fortunately the elderly victim wasn't injured but nonetheless this has been an extremely frightening experience for her."
The offender is described as a white man with brown hair, approximately five feet seven inches tall, and aged between 45 and 50. He was wearing a grey, white and blue chequered shirt with long sleeves.
No arrests have been made and anyone with information is urged to call Dorset Police on 101.
The incident happened at around 4.20pm on Friday, August 9.
