WASHINGTON -- When you have to eat, you have to eat. And apparently, a Washington man accused of breaking into a Northwest Five Guys was hungry.

Security video from inside the Irving Street Five Guys shows the man making himself a meal.

"A suspect followed a delivery man into the restaurant and waited until the delivery man left. He then rummaged through the establishment, cooked food, and stole bottled water before leaving the restaurant," a D.C. police spokesman said.

The video showed him looking through the kitchen and cabinets before cooking himself two cheese burgers. All the while, he's talking on the phone and sipping a drink.

The crime happened between 3:10 a.m. and 5:05 a.m. Friday. Police need help putting a name to the hungry man's face.
