Police says a Quebec man who stole women’s clothing from clotheslines also left them a note with his contact details saying he was interested in buying their underwear or swimwear.

A 28-year-old man was arrested Thursday in connection with at least six cases in Gatineau and police are asking anyone else who might have been a victim to come forward.

Police say the suspect allegedly left a note on victims’ windshields or near their homes, saying he was interested in buying their underwear or swimwear and to contact him directly.
