Warning after armed man attempted to get into woman's car in Gallows Hill, Abbots Langley
An armed man attempted to get into a young woman’s car in Abbots Langley earlier this week and a police search has been launched.
Clare McGrath was driving home on Tuesday night along Gallows Hill when she was flagged down by a man with a weapon. She slowed her car and the man attempted to get into it, but Ms McGrath managed to drive away before he was able to.
She called the police at 11.25pm and gave officers a description of the man.
Ms McGrath took to social networking site, Facebook, to say: "Just to warn others, I was driving home last night up the one way road going from Gallows Hill to upper highway in Abbots when a man tried to stop me and get in my car and had some sort of weapon in his hand. Lock your cars as you are driving and do not stop for anyone."
Hertfordshire Constabulary has said the suspect is a white man in his late thirties and has short dark hair. He is around 5’10 and was wearing a navy anorak at the time of the incident.
Officers are asking anyone with information to call the police on 101.
