Woman attacked during lift home on A14 in Suffolk

A woman was subjected to repeated indecent assaults during a car journey after accepting a free lift following a night out in Suffolk.

The victim, who is in her 20s, was approached by a man while she waited for a taxi in Bury St Edmunds early on Saturday.

He attacked her during the journey on the A14 eastbound.

He is described as of Asian appearance, in his early-30s, 5ft (1.52m) tall, of medium build and had a goatee beard.

He was wearing a white short-sleeved shirt and spoke in broken English, a police spokesman said.

The victim had spoken to the man earlier in the evening in a club.

He had then walked up to her while she was sitting in St Andrews Street, opposite the Arc shopping centre.

He was told to leave and did, but at about 0130 BST he approached her again in a silver or light-coloured saloon car as she waited for a taxi in Buttermarket.

Suffolk Police want to hear from anyone who may have seen the man and his car in the town centre, or in Beyton, where he dropped off the woman.
