WATCH: Ottawa Police release photo of man in break in at Trudeau home

But Police are stopping short of calling him a suspect, only a person of interest

Ottawa police have released a video of a person of interest in a recent ``nighttime prowling incident'' in the city's Rockcliffe area, the same neighbourhood that's home to Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau.

Police won't say, however, whether there's a link between the man in the video and a break-in at Trudeau's home last weekend.

They are asking for the public's help in identifying the thin, bearded man, who appeared to be using a cellphone, as seen in black and white images from a security camera.

Police say they want to speak with the man.

The break-in at Trudeau's home took place on Saturday, while the Liberal leader was away, but his wife and three young children were asleep.

Trudeau has said he was ``extremely troubled'' over the incident, in which no one was harmed. A threatening note was reportedly left on the premises.
