Man tricks his way into elderly woman’s home

A SMARTLY dressed door-step conman tricked his way into the home of an elderly Rye lady.

The victim is 87 years old and lives alone at Winchelsea Road.

At 10.30am last Thursday a man knocked on the door and claimed he was fitting a kitchen a few doors away.

He said he needed to check the water and went inside the house before leaving shortly afterwards. It is believed a second man also entered whilst the occupant was distracted.

The man who knocked on the door is described by police as white, his 20s, with dark hair, wearing a smart navy blue suit and described as well groomed.
