Detective Constable Paul Houston of Pollok Police Station said: “The suspect did not approach the women or speak to them but they were upset as a result of these incidents.

“Officers have carried out enquiries and are studying CCTV footage from the local area to gather more information on the man responsible. We fully appreciate that incidents of this nature can cause alarm within the local community, and while none of the victims have been approached by the suspect, they are still distressing to witness. As a result, we have stepped up patrols in the area to provide public reassurance while our investigation continues.”

“If anyone was in the area around these times on Friday, 22 April and saw this man acting suspiciously, or has any information that will assist officers please contact 101 with reference 2866 of 22 April. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
