NOWRA detectives are looking for a man who broke into a Wallace Street nursing home on Saturday night.
The man entered the home at 9.40pm and walked through the courtyard before entering a building.
He went into a number of rooms where he rummaged through drawers.
Two residents confronted the man and escorted him from the building.
Investigators from Shoalhaven Local Area Command would like to speak to a man who may be able to help with their investigation.
He is described as having an olive complexion, about 180cm tall, thin build, short dark hair in a mohawk style, wearing dark clothing and having a tattoo on his inner left arm.
