Nottinghamshire Police have released an image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with a robbery in Carlton.
During the brazen day-light burglary a man forced his way into the home of a woman who was then tied up with cable ties in her lounge.
He threatened to hurt the woman with a knife he claimed he had in his pocket if she did not co-operate.
Whilst he was searching through her property she managed to break free and alert a neighbour who then called the police.
The man stole a number of watches and jewellery before fleeing on foot.
The offender is described as white, in his 40s and around 5ft 5ins tall.
Anyone with information should call 101 and quote incident number 398 of October 23.
