Police have released images of a baseball-capped suspect after an elderly man was conned on his doorstep in north Watford.

The incident occurred at around 1.10pm on Monday February 4 in the Callowland area when the suspect knocked on the victim’s door and claimed he owed him money for decoration work.

The victim handed over money and the man made off.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Hertfordshire Constabulary on its 101 non emergency phone number quoting crime reference C4/13/276. Alternatively call Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555111.
