An anony­mous let­ter-writer has been leav­ing sex­u­ally ex­plicit notes out­side a woman’s home for six months.

The vic­tim, aged in her 60s, has re­ceived six let­ters out­side her Dit­ton home and af­ter call­ing in po­lice the force is hunt­ing for the stranger be­hind them.

De­tec­tives have now re­leased an im­age of a man they be­lieve could help with their in­ves­ti­ga­tions and stated he is thought to be aged in his 50s.

The lat­est sex­u­ally sug­ges­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion was left on Jan­uary 20 and was found by the woman while she was putting out rub­bish at the front of her house.

The mis­sive was writ­ten in black ink on a scrap piece of pa­per and had been left in her gar­den.

A po­lice spokesman said there were no sim­i­lar in­ci­dents in the area and re­vealed no other vic- tims have been tar­geted.

House to house in­quiries are be­ing car­ried out and of­fi­cers are also check­ing for pos­si­ble CCTV.

Foren­sic in­ves­ti­ga­tors could also be con­sulted should any traces of DNA be found on any of the notes kept by the vic­tim.

Sergeant Mark Gins­berg said: “These let­ters have caused a con­sid­er­able amount of dis­tress and anx­i­ety to the vic­tim. We are con­tin­u­ing to fully in­ves­ti­gate the cir­cum­stances, to iden­tify the per­son re­spon­si­ble and I would urge any­one with in­for­ma­tion to get in touch.”
