A disabled man has been robbed of his wallet in his own home.
The 44-year-old was sitting in his wheelchair at his property in Dalkeith, Midlothian, when a man walked in uninvited.
He started talking to the victim before stealing his wallet, which was on his lap, between 12.30pm and 1.20pm on Thursday at the home in Easthouses Court. A struggle followed before the man wrestled the wallet away and made off from the property.
The suspect is described as white, mid-forties with a slim build, dark hair and a goatee beard and moustache. He was wearing a black beanie hat, a black three-quarter length jacket and blue jeans.
Detective Inspector Martin Black, of Lothian and Borders Police, said: "The victim was not injured during this incident but was left very distressed after a male entered his home uninvited and robbed him of his wallet.
"We are conducting local enquiries to see if residents in the area saw anything suspicious and are keen to hear from anyone with information that can help with this investigation. Similarly, anyone who recognises the description of the suspect and can assist officers in identifying him is asked to contact police immediately."
