A masked man has been spotted spying on a couple through their window late at night in a village in Somerset. Avon and Somerset Police said officers were called to Claverham on 1 September at 0:15 BST but were "unable to locate the man”.
In 2019 a man in a “gimp suit” charged at a woman in the village terrifying her. Officers said they were keeping an open mind as to whether the two incidents were linked.
A man wearing nothing but a black latex mask was spotted 'staring at traffic' then running through woodland.
Shocked motorist Craig Upton called 999 after coming across the bizarre sight at 7am when he was travelling to work. Mr Upton, from Andover, Hants, said: "He was stood at a five-bar gate in a layby... naked with a latex black mask on. He was just stood, staring at the traffic like a horror movie, and then when we drove back past after turning around, he was running off."
On an other occasion a black-clad ‘gimp’ was seen walking the aisles of Tesco in Colchester, Essex in April 2020.
The gimp is back!
