The image is taken from an address in Landbeach that was burgled on December 30, 2013.

It is believed the burglary is connected to a violent robbery at a home in Madingley Road, Coton.

Police said the incident, which took place between about 10pm on Saturday, November 29, and 2.20am the following day, left the victims traumatised and in fear for their safety.

There is a £5,000 reward for information which identifies the offenders and leads to a successful prosecution and conviction.

Detective Inspector Alan Page from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire major crime unit, said: “We believe the person in this image has information which will help our investigations into both incidents.

“The subsequent robbery was one of the most horrendous offences I have investigated in 20 years of policing.

“I believe there are people who can help bring the offenders to justice.

“I urge anyone with information to get in contact. People like this do not deserve your protection or loyalty.”

Anyone with information should contact DI Page on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
