Police are appealing for information and witnesses


POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man verbally abused a woman out shopping with her daughter in Harpenden.

The public order incident in Church Green took place on November 1 just after 4pm and involved a parking dispute.

A woman parked and got out of her vehicle with her child when she was approached by the man who followed them.

The suspect is described as a white man aged in his 40s or 50s with short grey hair and a slim build.

He was wearing a long-sleeved dark coloured top, possibly maroon in colour and blue jeans. He was also carrying something white in his hand.

Sergeant James Twitchett from the safer neighbourhood team said: “Understandably the incident left the woman and her daughter shocked and I am appealing for any witnesses to contact me.

“We have been making inquiries and know that there were a number of people around at the time of the incident either in the street or in shops. If this was you, please contact me.”

Anyone with information about the incident should contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
