Aggressive salesman

Post by PRS » Thu Oct 22, 2009 9:38 am

I have just received the following from our Beat Manager:

Good Evening All
I would like to make you all aware of the following. It was sent to me
via e-mail this evening.
My wife had an unpleasant encounter this morning with a young man who
was selling his wares door to door. We believe that we have similar
encounters with this young man in the past.
He had been selling door to door in Heytesbury and Norton Bavant, with
little or no success and was frustrated and hostile when my wife told
him that she did not want to purchase anything. He became insistent and
verbally aggressive and eventually closed the conversation with a remark
along the lines of "if people in these villages will not buy anything
from me I will come back and take it for myself".
He is believed to be in his late teens or early twenties with brown
hair. He walks from door to door carrying a large bag.
We wish him all the best in taking the initiative to earn a living in
this manner, but we find his intimidating and threatening manner to be
totally unacceptable.
If there are any further incidents i would urge yourselves and anyone
else in the area to contact police on either 0845 408 7000 or if they
feel in any immediate threat to themselves or property etc then to dial
999 and obtain any available details if possible and safe to do so.
Kind Regards
