People are being warned to watch out for a man who is claiming to be a window cleaner.

The man often targets elderly or vulnerable people living in bungalows or sheltered housing telling them he has cleaned their windows and that they owe him money.

He is white, in his late teens or early twenties, about 5ft 8ins, of slim build, short brown hair and clean shaven.

The most recent incidents took place last week. The man went to a woman’s home in Oldbrook on October 21 and told the woman he had cleaned her windows the day before and was coming to collect the money. She told him she did not have the correct amount but he said he would take any money that she was able to give him.

The following day in Willen the same man went to a house claiming to work for the home owner’s current window cleaner. He was challenged by the woman and ran away.

Detective Sergeant Kelly Gardner said: “We are asking residents in Milton Keynes to be careful who they are opening their door to and if they have any concerns then to call the police. We ask residents not to be alarmed as the man is not thought to be dangerous.

“We are working hard to find the man and prevent this from continuing and should anyone have any information about this male then we ask them to contact us”.

Anyone with information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
