This story is over

Lincolnshire Police are investigating a report that a ‘peeping Tom’ sexually harassed a woman at her property in the Burton Road area of Lincoln.

At around 3.30am on July 1, the woman reported being spied on through the windows of her home by a man several times before he then began shouting sexual remarks through her letterbox.

The woman claimed that the man returned to both the front and back of her property through the garden between 3.15 and 4.10 am, shouting comments like “nice t*ts” through her letterbox.

After the incident the victim told The Lincolnite: “I believe this person was sexually motivated to break into my property to commit sexual assault.

“It’s the second time I’ve had this problem in the past two years. The first time was at a property not to far from this one. It makes me feel uncomfortable in my own home.”

Police confirmed they are looking into the incident, which may constitute an offence under Section 4A of the Public Order Atc 1986 – Intentional harassment, alarm and distress, and attended and searched the area with ‘negative result’.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesperson said that they would like to speak with the man pictured in connection with the incident.

While he may not be the offender, it appears he was near the location at the time the incident was reported and may be able to help with enquiries.

Anyone with information should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 38 of July 1.
