Dear Watch Member,

Police are appealing for help to identify a man who may have witnessed the altercation but ran off when approached by officers. When tracked down after a foot chase, he brandished a knife at a police officer before making off again.

The incident began at 4.30pm on Tuesday 10th July in Market Place and the man was chased to Stockbridge Road before officer's lost sight of him. No one was injured during the incidents but police need to identify the man.

He is described as a white man in his early 30s with short dark hair.  He is around 5ft 10in tall and slim build. He was wearing light blue jeans and a white t-shirt with a blue logo on the back.

If you saw what happened or know who the man is, please contact Detective Constable Ashleigh Olwage at the Local Crime Unit at Hatfield on 01707 806838 or use 101.  If you prefer not to give your name, please use Crimestoppers 0800 555111.

"MURDER detectives probing the fatal stabbing of a Hatfield man have not ruled out a connection with a thug who pulled a blade on them and fled the previous night."

"A MURDER probe has been launched by police after a man died in hospital following a disturbance at his home in Hatfield last night (Wednesday). The victim, named locally as Darren Leonard, who was in his early 20s, died at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage in the early hours of this morning."
