Naked shore watchers

1 min read

New Brighton Police have received a number of calls complaining of a naked person harassing women on the beach, says Sergeant Gary Manch.

"What you do in the privacy of your own home is up to you," he says. "Just don't inflict your ideas on others."

Police received a complaint from a woman a few weeks ago, of a naked male harassing her. While searching and making inquiries, Police received numerous similar complaints from other women who walked in the area.

The area is north of the Waimairi Surf Club, Beach Road and Marine Parade.

"I'm guessing there is probably more than one person involved," says Sergeant Manch. "This area is not deemed to be a nudist area and everyone must respect this."

Anyone with information is asked to contact New Brighton Police.
