Witnesses are sought by police investigating two suspicious incidents in Ashford in which two women were reportedly harassed by a man on separate occasions on Monday 27 March 2023.

The first incident is reported to have happened in Newtown Road at about 9am when the unknown man approached a woman and made suggestive remarks. He continued to engage her in an unwanted conversation for a short distance before he left.
