Gardaí say man stalking female sea-swimmers is "a danger to women"

"It is very scary and terrifying"

Gardaí in Co. Louth have launched an investigation after a man was caught stalking.

It is believed the suspect was stalking female sea-swimmers.

Numerous women contacted the Gardaí about his behaviour.

One woman told The Irish Mirror that he has been watching women undressing and also follows them home.

"This fella has been following women for months, it is very scary and terrifying. The Gardaí believe he is a danger to women."

"What sort of a country is it when you can't even feel safe going for a swim in the sea?" she asked.

"He is watching women dressing and undressing in their cars.

"He then follows them home to see where they live."

The women are "relieved" that an investigation has been launched, but are still afraid.

Many stressed that it makes them feel uneasy knowing the man is still out there.

They reported multiple incidents in Salterstown to the Gardaí, who are currently investigating.

A man in his early 30s was questioned by Gardaí but has since been released.

Gardaí have asked women to be vigilant as they continue their investigation.

They have also advised women not to go swimming alone.

If anyone sees the suspect then they must contact Gardaí immediately.

You can contact Ardee Garda Station with any information as well as possible sightings.
