The burglar entered a residence on Paloma Avenue in the Venice area of Los Angeles through an unlocked door, at around 7 am on July 11. While inside the living room of the residence, the thief grabbed an iPhone lying on a table and accidentally activated a video application, from which he then made a brief selfie video.

The suspect, described as a black male, took the iPhone and fled the scene. A woman and two teenage girls were inside the home at the time of the burglary.

The  Los Angeles Police Department got help from this robber, even though he didn’t mean to do any such thing. The phone owner later accessed the selfie video remotely and contacted the police, who then circulated the images.

Police released the selfie image in hope of identifying the burglar. In the selfie, the suspect is seen wearing a dark hat. The police have sought people’s help in identifying him.
