An Efit image has been released by police after a woman was assaulted in Ipswich

It happened on a footpath in woodland off Quilter Drive between 3pm and 3.15pm on August 26.

The woman, in her early 20s, was running in the area when she became aware of someone behind her and turned to see a man next to her.

He struck her, knocking her to the ground, but she managed to get up and ran from the scene.

The man is described as white, in his 20s, around 5ft 10ins tall, of medium build, with short dark hair, and wearing a baby blue T-shirt, jeans and dark coloured trainers. He was carrying a dark anorak-type jacket over his arm.

Police are asking anyone who may recognise him, or anyone who may have seen him in the area around this time yesterday, to come forward.

Officers are particularly keen to trace an older couple, who appeared to be walking their dog, who the young woman saw in the vicinity earlier in her run.
