POLICE have today released an E-fit picture of the person they suspect for a vicious attack on a man in a toilet.

The attack happened at the Barton Mills picnic site on the A1065 in the early hours of Friday May 2.

The 39-year-old male victim was in the toilet at around 1.45 am when he was approached by a man who cut him across his neck with what is believed to be a knife.

The attacker is described as white, approximately 5ft 8ins tall, slender to medium build, wearing a green parker style coat with the hood up, dark boots and dark baggy jeans.

Officers carried out an anniversary check last Thursday night (Thursday May 8) and spoke to around 20 people who were in the area. This inquiry generated some positive leads, which officers are now following up.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Ady Randall said, "I can't emphasise enough how important it is that anyone who was in this area on the night in question, to contact me, I can assure them that any information they pass to us will be handled with sensitivity."

"In particular I need to speak with anyone who was in the picnic area between 10.30pm on Thursday May1 and 2am on Friday May 2.

"We are still interested in establishing whether the driver of a grey or silver car either witnessed anything or has information which might help us with our inquiries and I would urge this person to come forward."

Anyone who has any information at all about this incident should call Suffolk Police on 01284 774 100. Anonymous calls can be made to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
