A woman was followed by a man with an “unusual gait” while she was exercising on a trail in east Melbourne.

Police said the 59-year-old woman was on the Eastlink at 11am on Saturday Trail between Springvale Road and the Mullum Mullum Tunnel in Donvale to the west.

The woman changed the side she was walking several times, but the man mirrored her movements and moved closer to her.

When he got within three feet of her, the woman turned, ran down the bike path and called for help.

The man followed her for a while, but finally gave up and returned to the Eastlink Trail.

The Police believe other exercisers saw the man described as Caucasian, possibly in his 50s, with a solid build and a short gray beard.
