Neighbourhood police teams from Gloucestershire Constabulary have warned residents about the incident in a community alert.

The alert said: “Police have received a report of a female dressed in gym gear carrying a lanyard knocking on a door in Quarry Close Hartpury.

“The female rung the doorbell and then when the door was not answered she progressed to walk around the back of the property into the garden.

“Nothing was taken from the property and no other doors (that we are aware of) in the area were tried.

“If you have any suspicious incidents please report them via 101 or through the Gloucestershire Constabulary website.”

The last incident of suspicious activity reported was in August when police warned of a man paying ‘particular attention’ to residents’ dogs when visiting a Gloucestershire home.

Residents reported the man to police after he began asking about their dogs when trying to purchase an item for sale which was advertised on Facebook.

According to a resident, he had been asking particular questions about the dogs and if anyone else was in the house.
