Police are appealing for information after a man broke into a house in Wigan.
Sometime between 2am and 2.40am on Sunday 29 July, women’s clothing was stolen from a home on Brambling Way in Lowton.
The offender stole the clothes and tried a number of the items on in the garden.
It is also believed that he touched himself inappropriately.
A man – who was seen on the roof – was challenged by an occupant of the house, but ran off.
Stolen clothes were later recovered from the garden.
Detective Constable Andrew Partington said: “This is an unusual incident that has understandably distressed the home’s occupants.
“We believe this crime was potentially sexually-motivated and it’s important that we find the individual responsible.
“Were you in the area at the time and saw someone acting strangely? If so, please get in touch with police.”
Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 7225 quoting incident 330 of 29/07/18 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
