Police 'Confident' on Finding Attacker

A month since a woman was sexually assaulted in her own home, detectives investigating are telling Heart they are 'confident' he will be brought to justice.

Police were contacted shortly after 9:30pm on Sunday 5 June by the woman who was reporting that she had been assaulted by an intruder inside her own home on Robin Drive.

The attacker is described as white, in his mid-40s, of average build, approximately 5’5” tall and smelt of alcohol at the time. He may have been wearing a navy-blue fleece and similarly-coloured trousers. He may also have been left with injuries to his face and hands.

DCI Nick Bennet said 'We've got a number of active lines of enquiry - and I've got not doubt we will bring this man to justice.'

'It was a good description and we have had a very positive response from the community in Ipswich, but it is disappointing that those enquiries have drawn a blank thus far, but we're confident despite that we will bring this man to justice.'

'We've been provided with the names of a number of people, but we've been able to eliminate those names from the enquiry, but we still feel there might be someone out there who knows who the offender is.'

'We will treat the info in the strictest of confidence and if anyone has not been involved then its a relatively quick and simple matter for us to elminate from our investigation.'

Anyone with information in connection with this attack is urged to contact detectives at Ipswich police station on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
