A woman has warned others to be careful after being approached by a man in a Kettering car park.

Rebekah Reynolds, who is deaf, had been shopping at Jollyes pet store in Mariners Way at about 7pm last night (Wednesday, October 21), when she was approached by the man.

She said: “He insisted on helping me to load the shopping into my car boot.

“I told him ‘no, I don’t need your help, thank you, but he was so persistent and wouldn’t go away, so I let him in the hope that he would once we’d finished.

“As soon as my shopping was loaded, he just stood there staring at me with his hand open as if he wanted something.

“I quickly said thank you and walked back to Jollyes, and he walked off.

“I ran back to my car, and locked my door.

“I saw him sitting down in the car park talking to himself.

“It was an alarming experience and I just want to warn shoppers to be extra vigilant at night.”

The man was wearing burgundy tracksuit bottoms and a heavy jacket.

He had black curly hair which was shaved on the side, olive skin and stubble. He was about 45 years old.
