Dog walker is chased by man in Tetbury


Police have been taking part in plain-clothed patrols in the area where a woman out walking her dogs was chased by a man in Tetbury last week.

Police issued an E-fit appeal of the suspect earlier this week, and since then more than 20 people have contacted them and provided information.

Investigating officers are in the process of reviewing the information, and police have thanked everyone who has contacted them so far.

Over the past week, both female and male plain-clothed police officers from the Constabulary’s Vanguard teams have been patrolling the area following the incident on Thursday 28 July.

The victim was walking her dogs in Hermit’s Cave Woods at 1.15pm when the man began following her. She fled the area, but the man continued to run after her.

It was only when the victim flagged down a cyclist that the man left. Police are continuing to appeal to this cyclist who helped to come forward.

The man who chased the woman was described as being a white man, aged between 40 and 50 with broad shoulders and tanned arms.

He had fair hair that was thinning and was physically fit with an athletic build.

At the time the man was wearing a burgundy/purple t-shirt with a round neck, dark trousers with pockets and dark shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to provide this to police online by completing the following form and quoting incident 270 of 28 July: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/contact/af/contact-us/us/a-crime-that-has-already-been-reported
