POLICE have appealed for help from the public as they try to trace three men who accosted a 10-year-old girl in the street.

The girl was walking along the footpath in Hintlesham Close, Stowmarket, between 3.15pm and 3.30pm on Tuesday afternoon when the incident took place.

As she was walking, a dark green car stopped near her in the middle of the road.

Two men were sitting in the front of the car and a third man got out of the boot and approached the girl, shouting at her.

She quickly ran away but was followed up the street by the man, who only left the scene when she went into a nearby house.
