E-fit released by Suffolk Police after girl raped in Ipswich

Suffolk Police have released an e-fit of a man they want to trace after a 17-year-old girl was raped.

The girl was walking alone along Landseer Road in Ipswich at about 1900 BST on Friday when a dark blue car pulled up alongside her.

She was forced into the vehicle by the driver who took her to a car park and then raped her in woodland adjoining Holywells Road.

Police have urged anyone who recognises the man in the e-fit to contact them.

'Extremely unusual'

He is described as white, aged about 47, of medium build, with a shaved head and clean-shaven. He was wearing jeans.

Det Ch Insp Neil Luckett said: "We would like to reassure people that this type of crime is extremely unusual.

"Our Major Investigation Team is working closely with officers from Operation Gemini, a team of dedicated investigators who only deal with offences of rape, to ensure our investigation is as thorough as possible.

"If anyone thinks they recognise the male from the e-fit likeness then I urge them to contact police immediately."
