Police officials confirmed a man who’s long been targeting the homes of the rich and famous around Wimbledon tried to break into one that belongs to tennis great Boris Becker.
According CCTV footage recorded last October, a man attempted to enter Becker’s Wimbledon Common house before an alarm scared him away (it is unclear if that’s Becker’s house at the start of the clip).
Police say the man has since returned. Though nothing has been taken or damaged, Becker’s wife, Lily, now lives in fear.
“Not only do I have to switch on all the alarms I have to leave some lights on in the house when I am sleeping,” she told the BBC. “I can’t enjoy my living room because it is connected to the garden where he has jumped over a few times.
“That freedom has been taken away. I would do anything to protect my family but I am a skinny little woman so there’s not a lot I can do.”
The Beckers and their children have lived in the home for many years, and now the family considering moving out unless the intruder in caught.
Here’s footage of the man doing what he does:
