Police are appealing for information after a 10-year-old boy was sexually assaulted in Earsham Street in Bungay yesterday (Sunday).

The incident happened around 11.30am on Sunday 18 May. The boy was with his family – including mum and dad – and the group were talking to some family friends when a man approached the boy and put his hand under the 10-year-old’s bottom.

The boy told his parents and the 10-year-old’s dad went over to the man to confront him about what happened.

The offender – described as white, in his 50s, of chubby build, around 5ft 10ins tall, with short wavy, messy mousey greying hair, wearing a T-shirt, blue trousers/ jeans, a bright white cap and carrying a messenger-style bag – then claimed he had accidentally touched the boy, before walking away.

Police were informed of the incident a short time later and officers are appealing for anyone who saw what happened or anyone with information about the man involved.

If you can help please call PC Samantha Plummer by dialling Suffolk Police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference BE/14/570.
