A woman disturbed a man trying to force open the front door of her flat.

Police are asking residents to be on the lookout after a woman heard a noise at the front door of her second-floor flat in Carraways, Witham at 9am on Wednesday.

She opened the door to find the man on his knees trying to open her door forcefully with a key.

She challenged him and he replied “Do you live here?”, before running off.

No damage was caused.

The man is described as aged between 20 and 40, of middle eastern heritage, with short black hair.

His facial hair was cut into a line across his jawline.

He was wearing a black coat, black trousers and was carring a black rucksack.

Anyone with information about this man, or anyone who sees people acting suspiciously in the area is urged to contact investigating officer DC Rebecca Kidby at Braintree Police Station on 101.

"no damage was caused" - only to the poor ladies emotions and nerves!! Far to much of this going on in our area and we are sick of it - someone was trying to kick my door the other day and denied it when I challenged them and he was a courier - was going to report it but my friend said there would be no point

No damage caused?

Only by sheer good luck I think.

I reckon the poor guy could have become a gibbering wreck for the rest of his life if he had found himself on his knees at Bhudeeka’s door when it creaked open upon him like that.

Streuth – perish the thought!

I somehow don’t think we’ll be troubled by him again. He’s probably realised what a close encounter he's had and is still sprinting in an easterly direction across the top of North Africa en-route to his home patch in the Middle East.
