Do you know this man?

He is wanted by York police following an incident of theft and fraud.

Sometime between 7.40pm on November 24 and 12.30am on November 25, an offender gained entry to a guest room at Hotel Du Vin in York and stole a number of bank cards.

The victim received a call to the hotel room on the morning of November 25 from someone who said they were from Barclays Bank.

She was staying in the hotel room with her husband. At that stage she did not know at this stage that her bank cards had been stolen, and she provided personal details, including her PIN number, to the person on the phone.

A short time later the victim noticed her cards had been stolen.

The victim contacted the banks, who informed her that £2,600 had been withdrawn from her accounts that morning.

The money had been taken from Barclays Bank in High Street, Doncaster.

Anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV image, or who has any information, is asked to contact police.
