Police are warning people in Leicester to be cautious after receiving reports about a rogue window cleaner in the North West area of the city.
The reports include victims being charged more than they were first quoted, work being carried out without their permission, and being charged extra for additional work.
Officers say the reports are coming from the Tudor Road and New Parks area but encourage all to be wary.
Although many window cleaners are genuine we would encourage residents and businesses to use professional window cleaners rather than door to door canvassers.
We encourage anyone that notices anything suspicious or experiences intimidating behaviour to call us to report this. Victims can also seek advice from the Citizens Advice Bureau in relation to trading standards.

Two men have been jailed for their part in the robbery and wounding of a man. The 49-year-old victim was attacked and had his bank card taken from him in the incident on May 24. Shaun Astill, 40, (pictured left) attacked the victim with a knife while the Alexander Dawson, 23, on the right, took the victims’ bank card to gain access to his account.
Astill, of Bonney Road, Leicester, pleaded guilty to wounding with intent to cause GBH and received a five year, four month jail sentence. Dawson, also from Leicester, pleaded guilty to robbery and was sentenced to three years and seven months. Detective Constable Vicki Hudson, the officer in the case, said:
“This was a horrific attack and one which has left the victim with life-long injuries, which he is still struggling to come to terms with.Both the offenders are well known to the police and I hope that their prison sentences show that the community will not put up with their criminal activities, risking the lives of others.”
