The alleged indecent assault happened at a property in the village on the outskirts of Stowmarket in the early evening of last Thursday, August 16.

Police called to arrest the 17-year-old on Sunday morning but, after his arrest, he fled from officers.

The hunt for the teenaged suspect was continuing today.
