Two other suspects – a 21-year-old from Ipswich and a 24-year-old from Felixstowe – have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rape.

The trio must return to the police investigation centre at Suffolk Constabulary’s Martlesham headquarters on November 20.

They were detained by officers after the woman was said to have been attacked at around 11.30pm on September 22.

Details of the incident and arrests have only now emerged after an enquiry by The Star.

Suffolk Constabulary has said that after being questioned, the suspects were bailed pending further enquiries.

The woman was taken to the Sexual Assault Referral Centre in Ipswich in the aftermath of the incident, where she was subsequently interviewed by specially-trained officers.

A separate inquiry is also currently under way into the alleged rape of a woman in Shotley Gate.

The attack is said to have occurred in the area of Lower Harlings.

Police have said a 23-year-old man from the Ipswich area was arrested following the incident and was questioned by officers.

The man, who was detained on suspicion of rape, was released on police bail while officers continue their enquiries.

He must return to the police investigation centre at Bury St Edmunds on December 19.

The alleged attack on a woman in her 40s occurred in the early hours of Saturday, September 15, and also emerged after an enquiry by the Star.

It was reported to police on the afternoon of September 15.

The suspect was arrested on September 16.
