A MAN has been arrested after an elderly woman was threatened in her own home for a window cleaning job she never asked for.

The 36-year-old man from Tilehurst has been arrested on suspicion of fraud and is currently in police custody.

On Sunday, June 15, a 85-year-old woman answered the door to a man at around 1pm on Cotswold Way, claiming to have cleaned the windows of her property.

The man was allegedly persistent in demanding payment for the job which she did not know anything about.

According to the resident, this is not the first time a man has called at the address demanding payment for work which has not been done.

Police released CCTV images on Monday, July 8 for the public's appeal in finding the man.
