Seeking Public Assistance - Nighttime Break and Enter

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance in relation to a nighttime break and enter.

At approximately 2:45 a.m., on Monday, March 16, 2015, the owners of a residence located in the 1300 block of 40 Street S.E., were asleep when they were awoken by a sound in the home. The female resident left her room to see what the noise was, and discovered a man within the home. She screamed and the man fled the residence, getting on a bicycle and leaving the area.

The man is described as having wavy hair, and wearing a black jacket.
