Women in Falmouth are urged to walk home with friends or get a taxi after a night out.

Police say a stalker has followed up to eight women since October. The latest incident was on Sunday.

He has run off after brushing up against them around Conway and Trelawney/Norfolk Roads.

The man is described as between 20 and 30-years-old and, on almost all of the occasions, he has been wearing a hooded top and tracksuit/jogging bottoms.

DS Dave O’Neill said, “These events have been very frightening for the women involved and I would urge anyone with information to come forward to the police.

“I would ask that anyone who may have been followed or approached in similar circumstances to contact us as well as anyone who may have information regarding the incidents.

“As we approach the festive season, I would also like to advise single lone women not to leave themselves in a vulnerable situation and should consider walking home with friends or arranging lifts or taxis.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Police on 101, quoting log number 300 of 081211.

If you think you are being followed try these three things...

  • Make a sudden change in direction, cross the road and pick up your pace.
  • Aim for somewhere where there are more people - that includes other homes or businesses.
  • Scream - your voice is your biggest weapon (or use a personal attack alarm). Carry on screaming as you run to attract attention. The more noise you can make the less likely the person following you is to try anything.
