'No need to panic' after man attempted to get into woman's car in Abbots Langley, say police
Police have moved to reassure residents over an incident involving a man getting into a woman’s car uninvited, which occurred last week.
The woman was driving home on Tuesday night along Gallows Hill, Abbots Langley, when she was flagged down by a man. She thought the man was carrying a weapon. She slowed her car and the man attempted to get into it, but she managed to drive away before he was able to.
Officers were called to the scene and conducted a search of the area.
A man similar to the description given was stopped and searched. He was not found to be carrying any weapons of any kind but was under the influence of alcohol.
Sergeant Neil Canning said: "These types of incidents obviously cause concern but I would like to reassure people that there is no need to panic.
"Detectives have investigated this incident and the man who matched the description was seen walking in and out of traffic and we believe it is more of a case of drunken behaviour.
"No other incidents of this nature have been reported in Abbots Langley, an area which experiences one of the lowest crime rates in the country."
