Suffolk police are appealing for information after a teenage girl was sexually assaulted in Ipswich last week.

As she stopped, he grabbed her with both hands, pulled her towards him and kissed her on the cheek and lips.

The man is described as a white male, 5 foot 6 inches tall, between 20 and 25 years old, with facial stubble and dark brown wavy hair that was cropped at the sides.

He spoke with a foreign accent and was wearing a white T-shirt with a central logo.
