Haverhill: Woman Attacked With Bleach and Glass
A woman has been attacked with a shard of glass and had bleach poured in her mouth in Haverhill.
The 18-year-old was walking along Leather Lane in Haverhill at around 9.45am yesterday morning, when a man approached her from behind. He tugged on her handbag and pulled her backwards against a fence.
Whilst pushed against the fence he produced a shard of glass and pushed it against her neck and stomach causing small scratch marks. He also took a bottle from a bag and squirted a liquid, believed to be bleach into her mouth.
He was then disturbed by a noise behind him and the woman managed to run home.
The woman was seen by her doctor but didn't need any medical treatment.
The man is described as white, aged 40 – 50 years, 6ft tall and of slim build; he had short dark curly hair and was clean-shaven. He wore a dark blue long sleeved hooded top, straight blue denim jeans and trainers. He also wore black fleece gloves and carried a blue shopping bag.
Dc Jenny Gant from Bury St Edmunds CID said: “This is an unusual assault where we will be making further enquiries to ascertain the full circumstances surrounding the incident. It is important that we hear from anyone who was in the area who may have seen this man.”
Calls in relation to this incident should be made to Dc Jenny Gant at Bury St Edmunds CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Tributes have been paid to a man who died during an industrial incident at Besthorpe, near Attleborough, last Monday.
Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances that led to the death of a young woman in Great Yarmouth.
Police are appealing for witnesses and asking communities to be vigilant after six burglaries in the west of the county.
