(PALOS PARK) A southwest suburban home was ransacked Tuesday, and police have released a sketch of a person of interest in the burglary.

The resident of the home in the 12400 block of 82nd Avenue came home Tuesday to find the house the rear door kicked in and the house in disarray, Palos Park police said.

The owner had been out between 11:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m., police said.

About 1 p.m., a neighbor just south of the home that was burglarized said a man knocked on her door and asked if she needed any painting done, police said. He did not provide a flier or business card.

Police want to question that man in connection with the burglary and released a sketch of him based on the neighbor’s description, police said.

He is described as a white man in his 40s with blond hair; a tall, thin build; and wearing painters clothing, police said. Neighbors saw a blue or purple mid-sized, four-door vehicle in the victim’s driveway between 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m.
