An armed man who deliberately smashed a windscreen of a car in Wellingborough Road is being hunted by police.

Two men were sitting in their car, a red Volkswagen Golf, when a man came up to the vehicle, held a knife through the open passenger window and then smashed the windscreen.

No-one was injured and the man walked off down a near-by alleyway.

The offender is described as white, aged 40-50, with short brown hair and a short beard.

The incident happened yesterday (Tuesday) between 9pm and 9.30pm, near Costcutter.

Witnesses, or anyone with information, are asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555.
