A reward is being offered for information on the robbery of an elderly woman in Fife.
The 76-year-old was robbed of items including jewellery and cameras after being threatened and restrained by a man at her home in Crossford.
A £5000 reward is now on offer from Crimestoppers for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the man responsible for the incident that took place on Friday, May 4.
CCTV images of a man have also been released.
He is described as 5ft 8in with a medium build and short light hair.
He spoke with an accent that was possibly Eastern European and is believed to have links to Greenock and Clackmannanshire.
Angela Parker, Scotland National Manager for the charity , said: "This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim and what she went through is something I cannot even begin to imagine.
"The man responsible is clearly someone who does not care who he hurts, how much suffering he inflicts, regardless of whether that person is vulnerable or not.
