A conman robbed a 92-year-old woman by claiming £90 for allegedly cleaning the gutters of his home.
Police have released CCTV images of the man they would like to speak to in connection with the fraud.
At about 12.25pm on Wednesday, 26 April, the man visited the woman’s house in Fulbourn Road, Teversham, South Cambridgeshire, and asked for £90 payment for cleaning gutters the previous week, which hadn’t been done.
“He then invited himself in the house and spent a few minutes inside before the woman gave him £20,” said a police spokesperson.
“As the man was leaving, he told the victim he would be returning the following week.
“He walked off in the direction of the centre of Teversham.”
PC Ryan Parker said: “This was a shameful fraud on a vulnerable woman, and I would like to speak to the man in the CCTV images as I believe he can help us with our enquiries.”
