Police are investigating claims two women have been “touched inappropriately” in Ipswich town centre in the last three days.

A woman told detectives a man approached her from behind near the entrance of the Wolsey Theatre in Civic Drive and put his hand up her dress before running off.

It took place at around 1.50pm on Wednesday.

Detectives are linking this to a similar incident in which a woman told police that as she bent down to pick up an item in a Dorothy Perkins shop in the Cornhill, she was approached by a man who put his hand up her skirt before apologising and walking out.

The incident took place between 1.35pm and 1.45pm yesterday.

In the first incident, the man is described as white, between 30 and 35 years old, around 5ft 8ins tall, with short thinning dark brown hair and a bald patch at the rear of his head. He was also clean shaven and wearing a dark red T-shirt and blue jeans with a brown belt.

In the second incident, the man is described as white, between 25 and 30 years old, between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 10ins tall, with short fair hair and wearing a long sleeved brown jumper, light blue jeans and white trainers.

Witnesses or people with information relating to this incident are urged to call police on 101.
