A TEENAGE girl was sexually assaulted in Felixstowe.

The incident took place in Chester Road at around 1.30am to 1.45am on Sunday when a 17-year-old was attacked.

Officers were contacted yesterday morning.

The 17-year-old reported she had been walking along the road when a male knocked her to the ground, put his hand up her dress and sexually assaulted her.

The girl screamed and the male – possibly in his teens and wearing a hooded top with a scarf partially over his face – ran away.
