Allegations of a groper on Christchurch's Port Hills have shocked those who run an athletics club.
At least two women have alleged they've been approached and grabbed by a man in the past month.
However, they're yet to lay any official complaints with the police.
A spokesman from the Port Hills Athletics Club says he hadn't heard of anything untoward happening recently.
He says the last incident he can recall was around 20 years ago.
Reports say the man involved is in his 50s or 60s, is of short and stocky build with black hair and he could be of Asian or Indian descent.
