A teenager has been left "shaken" after she was sexually assaulted by a man in broad daylight in Ipswich.

Suffolk Constabulary has released a CCTV image of a man they would like to trace in connection with the incident on Wednesday, November 8.

At around 11.40am, a woman in her late teens was in River Path, just off West End Road near the Sir Bobby Robson Bridge, when she was approached from behind by a man who placed his arm around her shoulders, pulling her towards him.

He then released the woman but, within a minute, had turned back towards her and touched her inappropriately.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said the victim had been “left shaken by the incident”.

The man involved is described as white, possibly in his 40s, with dark, greying hair which is short at the sides.

He was reported as wearing dark grey jogging bottoms, a black hoodie and black Slazenger trainers, believed to have a white stripe on them.

It is thought the man walked in the direction of London Road following the incident.

Anyone with information that can help with the investigation should contact police 101, quoting crime number 72183/17.
