Hunt for prowler

CAMP­BEL­TOWN po­lice are anx­ious to hear from any­one notic­ing a man be­hav­ing sus­pi­ciously after dark.

This ap­peal fol­lows a num­ber of com­plaints about a prowler, which cul­mi­nated in an in­ci­dent in Glen­side at 2am on Sun­day.

A 71-year-old woman awoke to find a man in her bed­room. A down­stairs neigh­bour heard the woman’s screams and ran up­stairs. The in­truder es­caped, pos­si­bly through a win­dow.

The woman was taken to Camp­bel­town Cot­tage hos­pi­tal suf­fer­ing from se­vere shock and bruis­ing. She was later de­scribed as quite com­fort­able.

Ar­gyll’s deputy chief con­sta­ble, Su­per­in­ten­dent Robert Law and de­tec­tive In­spec­tor Cun­ning­ham came at once from county head­quar­ters at Lochgilp­head to as­sist in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
