Police in Ipswich are appealing for information after two women were touched inappropriately in the town centre.

On Wednesday (23 April) a woman reported to police that she had been near to the entrance of the Wolsey Theatre when a man approached her from behind and put his hand up her dress before running off. It happened at around 1:50pm.

The man is described as white, between 30-35 years old, approximately 5ft 8ins tall, with short thinning dark brown hair and a bald patch at the rear of his head. He was also clean shaven and wearing a dark red t-shirt and blue jeans with a brown belt.

Police are linking this to a similar incident that occurred yesterday (24 April) between 1:35pm – 1:45pm.

Whilst inside the Dorothy Perkins shop on the Cornhill a female victim was approached by a man and as she bent down to pick up an item he put his hand up her skirt before apologising and walking out.

The man is described as white, between 25-30 years old, approximately 5ft 8ins – 5ft 10ins, with short fair hair and wearing a long sleeved brown jumper, light blue jeans and white trainers.

Anyone with any information in relation to either of the above incidents is asked to contact Ipswich CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
