A teenage girl's reported being raped in an alleyway in Ipswich.
Police are asking anyone who was in the Queen Street area on Saturday afternoon to come forward.
Officers were contacted around 7.50pm on Sunday 3 May about the incident which happened between 1.45pm and 2.30pm on Saturday 2 May.
The teenager had been walking in Ipswich town centre when she rounded a corner and saw two males who asked her for directions and then asked her to go with them.
The girl said they then walked along Princes Street towards King Street where they went into an alleyway in the Queen Street area, where she was threatened and then raped. She then got up and ran out of the alleyway, and went to meet up with a friend.
One of the men is described as black, around 5ft - 5ft 3ins tall, of small and skinny build, thought to be aged in his late teens to early 20s, with short black hair, stubble on his chin and wearing a light grey tracksuit.
