Ipswich: Police Investigating Cromer Road Rape

Police have spoken to 180 people during an investigation after a woman was raped on Cromer Road on Monday.

Anniversary checks were carried out by police last night in Ipswich after a 27-year-old woman was raped on Cromer Road.

The victim had been walking along Norwich Road and turned onto Cromer Road at around 8.30pm. As she walked towards Bramford Lane, a man approached her and asked her for the time, he then pulled her off the road and assaulted her.

The man is described as mixed race, 35 – 40 years old with short black hair; he wore black jeans, black shoes and a black waist length jacket.

The victim is being spoken to by specialist trained officers and is receiving support.

Detective Inspector Trevor Prior said; "During the anniversary checks police spoke to around 180 people in a bid to gather further information and to trace anyone who was in the area on Monday evening.

"We will now look at the information given to see if this helps our investigation, but we’d ask anyone who was in the area who hasn’t already spoken to us to come forward. You may unwittingly have details that can help regardless of whether you think you saw anything or not.”

Anyone who was in the Cromer Road/ Norwich Road area on Monday night can contact Suffolk Police, on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously if required on 0800 555 111.
