An elderly woman found a man in her home who demanded she open the front door for him.
The burglary happened in Tyringham Close, Weston Favell where an 83-year-old woman found a man in her house.
She called a neighbour who arrived to find the man still in the house. The offender pushed the neighbour - a man in his early 70s - over, before leaving the house and running off towards Booth Lane.
The victim later discovered five rings, a bracelet and a small amount of cash had been stolen.
The offender was a tanned, white man, 5ft 10ins, of muscular build, in his mid-20s, with a fat face, short, cropped dark hair and clean shaven. He was wearing a black vest, dark trousers and was wearing white gloves.
Officers investigating a burglary in Northampton have now released a picture of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
The burglary happened sometime between 4.30pm and 5pm on Tuesday, July 1.
The man, or anyone else with any information about this incident, can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
