Suffolk police ask for help over sex assault claim

Police in Lowestoft investigating after a 21-year-old woman reported being sexually assaulted in the early hours of Saturday, 2 February, are asking anyone who was in the Homefield Avenue area between 2.40am and 3am to come forward.

CCTV shows the woman left Hush nightclub, on Lowestoft seafront, around 2.40am with a white man, with short dark hair who was smoking a cigarette. The man initially approached a doorman at Hush to speak to him and then spoke to the 21-year-old woman who was sitting on the steps of the club.

The two then walked around the corner, and stood along the wall of the Hotel Hatfield, and appear to share a cigarette and talk before walking away along Wellington Esplanade.

Police need to trace this man and are asking him, or anyone who may have seen the two together, to come forward.
