Police say the thief entered a home in the Venice area through an unlocked door, grabbed the phone - then accidentally activated a video app.

The crook briefly recorded himself standing in the living room before he took off with the device.

A woman and two 15-year-old girls sleeping in the house were not hurt.

The owner of the phone remotely accessed the video, and police have now released it, hoping somebody can put a name to the face .
