Police want to identify a man seen behaving oddly near Peel in recent weeks.
The incidents have occurred around lunchtime on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the area of Patrick village, Raggatt Park and the nearby old railway lines, all just outside Peel.
A police spokesman said: ‘A male has been seen partially clothed and on other occasions dressed in a manner which has caused females to feel uncomfortable and sufficiently concerned, so as to report the matter to the police.’
The man is described as white, between 25 and 35 years old and 5ft 10ins tall.
He has either an English or Manx accent and he has been seen wearing a dark beanie hat a blue coat and dark coloured tight fitting leg wear and on at least one occasion had a neatly trimmed beard.
Sergeant Gavin Callow said: ‘We would stress that no one has been reported as being threatened or assaulted in any way by this male, however we’re naturally keen to ensure the safety and welfare of this male and the wider public.
‘We would ask members of the public to avoid any speculation about this matter and to pass any information directly to Peel police station, police headquarters or any police officer.’
