He was wearing a white baseball cap and a white top with a big blue band across it, as well as a scarf across his face.

Investigating officer PC Grant Hebblewhite, from Milton Keynes police station, said: “This incident left both women shaken to the extent that the 80-year-old victim no longer wants to go walking outside.

“No-one should feel scared to leave their own home and we need to identify this man to make sure he doesn’t repeat this kind of behaviour.
