Wo­man scared as man fol­lows her in park

Nottingham Post - - NEWS -

A WO­MAN has told how she had to pre­tend to know a group of dog walk­ers to get away from a man who fol­lowed her in a pop­u­lar coun­try park.

She said the man had jumped out from bushes be­hind her and then kept up with her even when she sped up.

The 47-year-old mum from Ilke­ston, who wants to re­main anony­mous, was walk­ing to meet friends for their reg­u­lar morn­ing jog at Ship­ley Coun­try Park at around 9.45am on Mon­day.

Near the car park, she saw a dark-clothed man in his 40s with fair hair hid­ing in the bushes, and he sud­denly jumped out be­hind her as she walked by.

She said: “I started feel­ing un­easy. I walked faster and he walked faster. It was scary. Al­though there was no con­tact, it made me feel wary.”

Der­byshire Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
