Concern as hooded man follows elderly woman in Calne
A female driver offered an elderly woman in her sixties a lift home after she saw a hooded man following her in Calne and has reported him to the police.
The driver was travelling along Abberd Way by The Bungalows on September 26 between 8pm and 8.15pm when she saw the man.
She noticed he was getting closer to the woman and she thought he would steal her handbag, so she turned her car round.
After she reported the incident, officers went to speak to the elderly woman and she confirmed she was very nervous of the man.
He appeared as she passed the alley to Honeymead on Abberd Way and she slowed so he would pass, but he remained behind.
She said she was relieved to see the woman’s car pull up and after this the man turned off by the garage on the older part of Abberd Way.
He was wearing a baggy grey flannel tracksuit, with his hood up so they could not see his face, and was short and stocky.
Both women said his age was between 18 to 30 and he wore a very long black bag on his back.
If anyone has a similar occurrence happen to them, or they if know who the man is, they should call 101 and speak to PCSO Gray 6240.
