Police are appealing for witnesses and information following an unusual incident in Welwyn Garden City.

At around 10.55pm on Tuesday, March 14, a man knocked on the window of an address in Goblins Green and spoke to the householder before leaving.

The same man returned at around 8.10pm on Thursday, March 16, and knocked on the door before poking some sort of plastic object through the letterbox.

The householder opened the door and asked him what he was doing and he left.

The man is described as being aged in his mid 40s, around 5ft 7in tall, with an Eastern European accent, olive skin and long black hair, which was in a ponytail and reached half way down his back.

He was wearing a three quarter length black leather jacket, which had two large pockets.

PC Stephen Carter, from the Welwyn and Hatfield Intervention Team, said: “We are keen to identify this man to establish the circumstances surrounding these two incidents.

“I am appealing for anyone who has seen him in the area or knows who he is to contact me via the Hertfordshire Constabulary non-emergency number 101.”
