Police are investigating after two Polish delicatessens in Stevenage were targeted by vandals who poured foul smelling liquid onto their shop floors.

Officers in Stevenage are also appealing for help to find a man they think could assist them with their investigations.

On Thursday, May 18, between 3pm and 5pm, a person went into Kapry’s Polish delicatessen in the Forum and poured a foul smelling liquid onto the floor and some of the display racks.

Then in a separate incident on Tuesday, May 23, at around 1.50pm, a man entered the Wawelski Delicatessen in the Forum and again poured a foul smelling liquid all around the shop floor.

Officers would like to speak to the man in these CCTV pictures, as they believe he was in the area at the time and may have information relating to their investigation.
