Police were called out to a house in Kingsthorpe, Northampton, yesterday after a man was spotted acting suspiciously in a garden.
Officers were called out to an address in Whiston Road after they received a call at about 5.30pm.
A search was made of the area but the man was not located.
Writing on the Spotted Northampton page, the woman who saw the man said he was “looking into a neighbour’s garden.”
She said: “He was about 6ft, wearing green hoodie (he had the hood up), black trackies, he was mixed race and had a goatee... That’s all I could see. I screamed for my boyfriend and ran to lock the back door... When my boyfriend came down and looked out the back gate was wide open.
“I don’t know what his incentive was but I reckon he was either looking for a vulnerable house to burgle or for neighbours dogs.”
