A teenage boy is reported to have followed a younger girl through a Suffolk cemetery where he said things which made her feel “uncomfortable”.

Police are trying to trace the teenager after the incident between Colchester Road and Cemetery Lane in Ipswich on Thursday.

The girl, 12, was walking through the cemetery, near the crematorium, at around 3.15-3.25pm, when she was followed, then approached by the boy.

“He made several comments which made her feel uncomfortable before he was called away by another teenager and cycled off,” a police spokesman said.

The boy is described as 14 or 15 years old, with a tanned complexion, dark hair, and an English accent. He was wearing a red short sleeved top with black marking on the fron and riding an orange mountain bike.

The incident was reported to police on Friday, July 14.

Officers are asking the teenager or anyone who knows who he is to call Suffolk police on 101, quoting CAD number 207 of 14 July.
