Suspicious male asking for money

Alert message sent 09/11/2020 17:54:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear Members

We received a number of calls in relation to a suspicious male knocking on doors and trying door handles around the Oadby area. The male is described as Afro Caribbean, mid 40’s, with beard wearing a Black Beanie Hat with writing on the front, Khaki Green Jacket, baggy navy blue joggers and Grey Trainers.

It is believed that this male is asking for money and has made sad stories to people that either his Boiler is broken and needed £45, or he has ran out of petrol and needed money to get home.

If a similar described person attends your door then please kindly refuse any of his requests and call us on 101 to report the incident. If you have a camera door bell then please let me know.

Please pass on this message to keep everyone safe!

Stay Safe and remember the three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other

Wash hands- keep washing your hands regularly or use sanitiser gel
Cover face - wear a face covering in enclosed spaces (unless you have an exemption from wearing one)
Make space - stay at least 2 metres apart
