Police have renewed their appeal for information after a woman was sexually assaulted at her home in Ipswich.

Officers have been conducting house-to-house inquiries in the Chantry area following the attack on 5 June.

The woman was attacked by a man who entered her home shortly after 2130 BST.

He is white, in his mid-40s, about 5ft 5in (1.65m), of average build and was wearing a navy blue fleece and similar-coloured trousers.

A Suffolk police spokesman said officers had still not been able to find him.

"We have had a really good response from the community as well as those who have contacted the incident room," he said.

"We would like to thank them and we continue to urge others to ring us with the information which will help us arrest this man."

Last month the victim was quoted in a statement issued by police, saying: "I think I will only be able to move on when this man has been caught."

The Evening Star newspaper has offered a £1,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the attacker's arrest and conviction.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact detectives at Ipswich police station or call Crimestoppers anonymously.
