Police have confirmed a man who officers wanted to speak to after three women were allegedly spat on has been identified.

Suffolk police released the images after the women, who were waiting for a taxi in Fore Street at around 3.20pm Wednesday, April 21, reported being spat on.

It is alleged the man, believed to be aged between 35 and 45, walked past without saying anything before spitting on them – with saliva landing on the face of one and the neck of another.

Suffolk police confirmed on Friday that the man in the CCTV images has now been identified.

Officers wished to thank members of the public for their assistance with the appeal.
