Ipswich: Woman Raped in Alley

Police are appealing for information after a 24-year-old woman reported being raped in an alleyway at Upper Brook Street in Ipswich around 11.30pm on Friday night.

The woman was waiting for friends outside a public house in Upper Brook Street and became engaged in conversation with a man, described as black, in his late 20s to 30s, of muscular build, around 5ft 9ins tall, with short black Afro hair and a moustache, who was wearing a coat and dark blue jeans.

They then walked together in the direction of Sainsburys and went into the alleyway where the man raped the 24-year-old. He then left towards the Cox Lane car park where he got into a small car which then drove away.

Police say they need to trace the man and also need to hear from anyone who was in the area around this time last night as they may have information that can help the enquiry.

If you can help please call DC Andrew Dibbs at Ipswich on 101.
