On 16/12/07 at 0800 hrs the following described male knocked on a door in Sydenham Rd, stating he had moved in four doors down and was having problems with his electricity, asked to borrow an extension lead, and when offered one, said it was too short !!!! So he was offered cash !!!!!!!!!!! And got £10. Funny enough he did not return , to pay back the money !!!!!!!!
Please make everyone aware, as this could escalate, like last time !
Asian male, slim build 5′ 8″ plus, thin beard around chin area, wearing a woolly hat, gave his name as Hussain.
