A suspected burglar was surprised by a quick-thinking victim who snapped him in the act.
The occupant of a flat in Blackstock Road, Finsbury Park, was in his sitting room on August 2 at about 6.40am when the bathroom door opened and a stranger appeared in the hallway.
Police believe the suspect clambered onto the flat roof and got in through the bathroom window, which was open.
He claimed he was in the wrong flat and left, but not before the occupant got a picture of him.
He was slim, with short hair and a black moustache and was wearing grey skinny jeans and black and grey trainers.
