A man is in custody after a glass entry door was smashed in Hatfield last night.
Police were called at 12.45am today (Friday, August 10) to a report that a man was acting suspiciously outside a block of flats at Clarkson Court on Tamblin Way.
The man was reportedly banging on communal doorway for numbers 143-200, and smashed the glass trying to get in.
A man has been arrested in connection with the incident and is currently in police custody.
Neighbours were appalled at the damage and the building’s owners plan to seek compensation.
One Clarkson Court resident told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “As a local resident I’ve been in Hatfield for over 10 years, there’s been a lot of changes in the neighbourhood with the kind of behaviour that you see.
“Is this a change in the local Welwyn Hatfield area? Or something that we are just going to have to get used to?”
