Police warning to women: Don't walk home alone

News | Published:

PARTYGOERS are being warned not to walk home alone at night following two separate reports of women being followed by a man in the last ten days.

The police have advised Islanders to take safety precautions over the Christmas and New Year period and not to leave themselves vulnerable to a potential attack.

There have been two reports to police about women feeling as if they were being followed home while walking alone after a night out over the past two weekends.

Detective Inspector Steve Langford said that there was nothing to suggest at this stage that the two cases were linked.

He said: 'These incidents may be a simple case of someone walking in the same direction as the women, but it was enough to make them feel uncomfortable and we are investigating.'
