Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

At around 3.20pm on Monday (12/10) the victim a 29-year-old woman, was at home with two of her children when an unknown man appeared at the door of a property on Temple, Stantonbury. When the victim asked what the man was doing he left the front door stating he was at the wrong address.
