Police have released an E-fit likeness of a man they would like to speak to after an elderly woman was sexually assaulted in Ipswich.

A Police Spokesperson said: "Of particular note is the description of the man's grey/pale complexion and of his hair, which was swept back and oily in appearance.

"This man is believed to frequent the area and detectives would like to hear from anyone who believes they may know a man matching this description, or from anyone who was in the area of Ransome Road Friday night and witnessed any suspicious behaviour."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Richard Prouse at Ipswich CID on 101 quoting reference IE/15/529, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
