Woman allegedly stalked, followed by man while on afternoon jog

Investigations are underway after a woman was left shaken after allegedly being followed by a man while out jogging yesterday.

Police said the woman was running along McDermott Drive in Goulburn around 4.20pm, when she noticed a man standing on the opposite side of the road watching her.

“As she turned off the McDermott Drive bridge and onto a walking track (that runs underneath the bridge) she noticed the man following her,” police said in a statement.


“The woman felt intimidated by his actions and made her way back to her residence.”

Police said that as the woman entered the grounds, she noticed he was still there watching her as she continued training.

The woman left the area and reported the man to police, however he had already left by the time officers arrived.

The man is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his late 20s to early 30s, and wearing a red shirt, light blue jeans, a dark cap, and white shoes.
