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.
