As she was travelling towards Haverhill, two men stepped into the road, causing her to stop. She got out of her car and was grabbed by her hair by one of the men. The other man then undid his trousers and exposed himself to her.

The woman struggled and managed to break free from the offenders. She then got back in her car and drove off. Around two hours later, she attended West Suffolk Hospital with bruising to her stomach and right cheek.
