A teenage girl has managed to escape after being attacked by a man wearing a ski mask.

It happened in Red Lodge in Suffolk on the morning of Sunday 19 June, but police are only just making an appeal.

The girl was walking along a bridleway near to Hundred Acre Way in Red Lodge at around 6am when a man grabbed her and attempted to force himself upon her. The girl was able to fight him off and ran from the scene.

The offender is described as a white man, of thin build, in his twenties and tall with rough bony hands and a deep voice. He was wearing a black hooded top, blue jeans, black Nike trainers, a bandana and ski mask.

“This incident was reported to Suffolk Police a number of days after it occurred and as such detectives have had to ascertain exactly what has taken place and construct an accurate sequence of events. Our officers have already explored a number of lines of inquiry and are now asking for information from members of the public.”

If you have any information that may help the investigation please call Detective Inspector Andy Footer at Bury St Edmunds CID on 01284 774100 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
