Woman chased by man while out jogging

A woman jogger burst into a police station in tears after she was chased by a terrifying stranger while on her morning run in Andover.

Anna Seymour was out for a jog this morning when she passed a man who was singing to himself.

The middle-aged man then began jogging behind her and sped up when she turned around to look at him.

Posting on social media, Ms Seymour said: "I could hear footsteps jogging my speed behind me. I ran between two cars to cross the road as I knew he was close to me and as I did I turned to see if he was actually running after me, with which he looked me in the eye and ran faster to catch up with me."

Terrified, she sprinted to an area where she knew there would be people to help, however, he then disappeared.

She said: "I went straight to the police station in tears and they logged my complaint and went looking for him.

"They said there was not much they could do as he didn't actually do anything to me, but my thoughts were, what if I hadn't have ran so fast and he did catch up with me, what would he have done then? This is prime example of why I do not run with headphones and always have my whits about me as there is nothing more scary than hearing a strangers' footsteps behind you and them looking you in the eye as they're running after you."

The incident happened at around 7am near Old Winton Road in Andover.
