CCTV footage released in Long Eaton threatening doorstep caller investigation

Posted on 23rd March 2018

Detectives investigating a string of threatening incidents in Long Eaton have released footage showing a car they would like to trace.

Earlier this month, we received a number of reports that a man had been knocking on doors in Helvellyn Way, trying to force his way in and making threats, before running off.

A man of a similar description also climbed into the passenger side of a car in Humber Road but fled after an altercation with the driver.

We have previously released CCTV stills in an effort to identify a man we want to speak to about the incidents.

We are now issuing moving footage from the same cameras. As we have previously stated, we know that the image quality is poor but the cameras do not belong to us.

Our officers are particularly keen to speak to the driver of a vehicle shown in the footage, which has a near-miss with the man running along the pavement.

The vehicle would have been travelling along College Street, Long Eaton, on March 6 when the man shown running steps out into the road.

If you are the driver, or if you have any information that could help our officers, please call 101 and quote reference 18000100870.

The man in the three incidents has been described as about 5ft 10ins, of slim build, and in his 20s. He was wearing a scarf and hoodie.

If you recognise the clothing, and can give us a name, call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
