Police want to speak to two good Samaritans who helped a woman after she was assaulted by a man in Ipswich. 

The assault occurred between 5.10pm and 5.20pm on Tuesday, November 2, in Sherrington Road, near the junction with Kensington Road. 

The victim – a woman aged in her 20s – was walking along Sherrington Road from the direction of Norwich Road, when a man walking towards her on the same side of the road attempted to speak to her.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: "The victim was listening to music and did not respond so the man then became verbally abusive, grabbed her by the arm and pushed her into a fence.

"The victim screamed out and the suspect then ran off along Kensington Road."

The suspect is described as white, with a ginger/light-brown beard.

He was wearing a back Adidas puffer jacket, a green hooded top and jeans.
