Hunt for verbally abusive man in Harpenden

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.”
