Police are investigating an aggravated burglary in Officer that occurred earlier this year.

Investigators have been told an unknown man entered a residence on Mary Street about 2.15pm on 22 February.

It is believed an occupant of the house, an 86-year-old man, was watching television in his bedroom with the door open when he heard noise coming from the next room.

Upon hearing the noise, the 86-year-old got off his bed, and confronted the unknown man who was rummaging through his kitchen drawers.

Officers have been told the man fled out the front door and away from the property.

Nothing is believed to have been stolen, and the victim was not injured.

Detectives have released images of the man in the hope someone with information will come forward.

He is perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, around 40-years-old and of solid build with short brown hair.

He was wearing a white t-shirt and dark shorts.
