Detectives investigating criminal damage and attempted arson in Croxley Green are appealing for information and witnesses.

The criminal damage happened in Baldwins Lane on the evening of Monday, November 16, when a black car parked outside a property had its front windscreen smashed. 

Between 5.45pm and 6pm on Saturday, November 21, petrol was poured over a van, also parked outside the same property on Baldwins Lane. 

An occupant of the property, a man, interrupted the offender – also a man – and attempted to detain him.

The offender assaulted the victim before running down Winton Drive. There, he got into a dark-coloured vehicle which drove away at speed.

The victim suffered an injury to one of his fingers as a result of the incident. 

The offender is described as white and aged between 30 and 40 years old. He was wearing a dark-coloured hooded jacket, blue jeans and white trainers.

Detective Constable Carly Fry, from the Three Rivers Local Crime Unit, said: “We are treating these incidents as linked and have made a number of enquiries since we were informed of these offences. The victims of these incidents have suffered a terrible ordeal, and they have since been safeguarded and supported by both police and partner agencies. 

“Now we are appealing for anyone who believes they witnessed some or all of either incident to please come forward and talk to police as soon as possible.

“If you have a dash cam and were driving in the vicinity of Baldwins Lane or Winton Drive at the time of the second incident, then please review your footage and contact us if you believe you have captured something of note.”
