A woman has been verbally abused and threatened at a petrol station in Potters Bar, and police are asking witnesses to come forward. 

On Monday, September 27, between 5.45pm and 6pm, a man was verbally abusive towards a woman in the BP Connect Station on the High Street. 

It was alleged that the man swore at her and was behaving in a threatening manner, before a member of staff intervened and the offender left the scene in a silver Mercedes.
