Police appeal


A 12-year-old girl was asked to get into a car by two men in Kesgrave yesterday.


She was walking home along Wilkinson Drive around 6.25pm and was near Cedarwood Primary School when a car drove onto the grass verge next to her.

A man inside asked her to come to the car and she saw a second man in the passenger seat.

The girl went towards the car but when the driver asked her to get in she ran to a nearby relative’s house.

The driver was described as white with short brown, greying hair who was wearing a blue polo-type shirt.

The passenger was also white with scruffy, long dark hair.

The vehicle they were in was dark blue with four doors, was dusty and rusty and had a small silver trailer behind with a black cover on.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Pc Luke Horsfield at Suffolk Police headquarters on 101.

  • If they spoke to her, why so coy about what their speech sounded like? Did they use sign language? Was it Suffolk? Liverpudlian? Glaswegian?
