POLICE are hunting a man who attacked and sexually assaulted a young woman in Felixstowe.

The 20-year-old woman was walking home along Runnacles Way between 3am and 4am when she felt a push on her shoulder and was knocked to the ground.

She ended up sitting on the ground with the attacker over her and then was pushed back.

The man then placed his hand inside the top of her jeans but the woman fought back, hitting him on his head and arm. The man then made off towards Kiln Field.

She got up and carried on her way before contacting a member of her family about the incident. The assault was later reported to police.

Detectives believe it is likely the suspect - described as white, around 5ft 8ins tall, of slim build, in his late teens to 20s, and wearing a dark coloured hooded top - would have sustained reddening or bruising to his face in the incident.
