A resident has suffered injuries to his face, leg and hand after an intruder was discovered inside his Hemel Hempstead property.

The unknown man was found at an address in Goldcroft between 8.45pm and 9pm on Saturday (March 23).

As an occupant forced the intruder to leave, an altercation broke out in the front garden. This led to the resident suffering minor injuries.

The unknown man then got into a dark-coloured vehicle and drove off in the direction of Bennetts End Road.

Detective Constable Amy Kemp said: "Enquiries are continuing at this time to establish the circumstances around the incident.

"As part of this, I am appealing to the public for information.

“Do you remember seeing anyone acting suspiciously in the Goldcroft area during the evening on Saturday, March 23?

“Anyone who has information at all is asked to please contact me by emailing amy.kemp@herts.police.uk.”
