Police are searching for a man after he allegedly made threats of violence towards two women in Welwyn Garden City.

Between 3.45pm and 4pm on Thursday, July 27, two women were driving in a silver Vauxhall Insignia along Brocket Road, towards Wheathampstead, when they were overtaken by another vehicle.

A police spokeswoman said: “It is alleged that this vehicle, possibly a black Vauxhall Corsa, has then braked hard causing the women to stop in order to avoid a collision.

“The male driver of the Corsa has then got out of the car and shouted abuse at the women.

“He has made threats of violence before returning to his car and driving away at speed.”

The man is described as being white, aged in his 20s, slim build and with short mousey hair.

He was wearing black thick rimmed glasses and wore orange high visibility work wear.

PC Gav Richardson, from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The women involved were left feeling very distressed as a result of this incident.

“There were numerous cars in the vicinity at the time. I urge anyone who saw the incident or who may have more information about the man in the black car to contact me.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Richardson via the non-emergency number 101. Or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
