Hunt Goes on After Sexual Assault

Police in Ipswich have been doing anniversary checks a week after a woman was sexually assaulted in her own home.

Suffolk Police carried out anniversary checks in Robin Drive on Sunday evening, following the sexual assault of a woman last Sunday.  Approximately 115 cars and a bus were stopped and around 130 people spoken to.

The woman was at home in Robin Drive, Ipswich when shortly before 9.30pm Sunday 5th June a man let himself in and sexually assaulted her.

 The man is described as white, aged mid 40s, about 5’5” tall, average build and was wearing a navy blue fleece and navy blue trousers.  He smelt of alcohol and tobacco at the time of the incident.

Acting Detective Inspector Chris Hinitt of Ipswich CID who led the anniversary check said, “We have been in the area of Robin Drive tonight talking to people to see if they were in the area last week and may have information, which could assist with our investigation into last weeks sex assault.

“I am very pleased with the public’s response to our enquiries so far.  We spoke to around 130 people this evening and I would like to thank them for their time and patience.

“We continue to urge anyone who recognises the man from the description, who has seen a man with recent scratch marks to his face, arms, or hands, or who has any information about this incident to contact us without delay.

“All information received will be treated in the strictest confidence and anyone not connected with this incident can be easily eliminated from the enquiry.”

Anyone who was in the area around the time this incident occurred or who has any information in relation to this incident is asked to contact Ipswich CID on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
