TikTok prankster identified as Bacari Ogarro, who uses the name “Mizzy” online, has been widely criticised after videos of him circulated on social media.
According to the Metropolitan Police, he’s been tracked. The tiktoker is said to be an 18-year-old, from Hackney, north London.
In one of the video circulating online, Mr Ogarro and others walk through the open door of an affluent house while the family was at home and film a “tour” of the premises.
He begins the video by saying: “Walking into random houses, let’s go”, before he and two other people walk into the home.”
He and the others were confronted by a man in the house who asked where the “study group” is being held.
They then leave – but not before Mr Ogarro briefly sits on the sofa. A young child can be heard in the background.
In a statement the police said: “Attempts are currently being made by officers from the Central East Command Unit to locate the man so that he can be dealt with for a suspected breach of a Community Protection Notice issued last May.”
Detective Chief Superintendent James Conway of the force’s Central East Command Unit, responsible for policing in Hackney and Tower Hamlets, added: “We are aware that this video has been widely shared both on social and mainstream media, and understand the concern caused by its content.
“I would like to reassure the public that we are taking the matter very seriously and are conducting an investigation, including enquiries to locate the man seen in the video.
“We have spoken with the homeowners and will continue to liaise with them in regards to our action on this matter.”
