Police are appealing for information after a car was allegedly damaged by males offering door to door vehicle services.

Wakefield District Police would like to speak to anyone who has information about the incident which took place at about 12pm on Wednesday, January 6, at an address on Crewe Avenue in Knottingley.

It occurred after two men were allegedly seen cold calling door to door offering to etch car windows.

The victim, a 31-year-old woman, declined their services when approached but later saw two men trying to etch the windows of her car anyway.

The matter was reported to police who are now investigating.

PC Simon Ragsdale of Wakefield District Police, said: “We are looking into this incident and would like to speak to anyone who may have been cold called by two men offering such a service in similar circumstances.

“Anyone who has been approached or had their vehicle damaged in this fashion is asked to contact myself at Normanton Response Team 5 on 101 referencing crime 13160007008.

“Information can also be given anonymously to the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”

A 62-year-old Rotherham man and a 51-year-old Dewsbury man were arrested in connection with the alleged offence and bailed pending continuing enquiries.
