Harsh words were exchanged and a car aerial snapped last night when a man was caught trying to break into a Potters Bar car.

Police were called at 9.13pm on February 27 to reports of the attempt on Park View.

When the victim challenged the man, who was wearing a white shirt and suit, they got into an argument and the offender snapped the car aerial.

He is described as black, bald and in his 40s, and drove off in a silver Toyota Yaris towards Gregory Avenue.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Herts Police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/19210/19.
