“I would ask people to be vigilant and to look out for their elderly friends, family and neighbours. I would also urge people to be cautious when strangers knock on the door. Always ask for identification and if you are at all unsure then do not let them into your house.

“I would like to hear from anyone who has information about this incident or who recognises the man in the e-fit image as he may be able to help with our enquiries.”
