A "SUSPICOUS" male who told a woman he was a window cleaner has been reported to police in Malvern.

West Mercia Police have received two reports of the male behaving suspiciously, one from a female in Ashdown Rise and another from a woman in St James Road.

She reported that at 4pm on March 12 a male walked down her drive, opened her front door and told her he was a window cleaner. He is then reported to have commented that the windows looked clean and he then left. He was described as being a white male on a push bike aged about 30-40yrs old wearing jeans, a light coloured coat and a baseball cap.

At 12.28pm on the same day a female in St James Road was approached by someone matching the same description offering to wash cars.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "We do not know if this is a legitimate businessman but his approach seems very suspect. We would urge people to report suspicious activity on 101 as we would be very keen to speak to this man and establish his intentions - in the meantime, the best way to have any work done is by people who you know and trust or come with plenty of good recommendations."
