A BURGLAR, who broke into a Clarkson home, entered an 8-year-old girl’s bedroom while she was sleeping earlier this month.

Senior Sergeant Stuart Fairlie explained the girl was woken about 5am on May 14 to find an intruder in her room.

The girl fled to her mother.

“She and her mother locked themselves in a bedroom and waited for the offender to leave,” he said.

Banks cards and a computer tablet were stolen in the incident.

Police tracked use of the cards to multiple convenience stores including one in Banksia Grove.

Last Thursday, police charged a 22-year-old Banksia Grove man with fraud and receiving stolen goods for allegedly using one of the cards, but did not charge him over the burglary.

He is due to face Joondalup Magistrates Court on June 16.

Investigators have released an image of a man they believe can help with inquiries into the burglary.

Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
