Police conducted checks in the areas of London Road, the A11 and Elveden Road between 10am and 2pm on Tuesday, where they spoke with a number of people.

Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Tamlyn Burgess said: "We are continuing our enquiries and are keen to speak to anyone who recognises the male depicted in the image or saw what happened, or who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the area around that time.

"This was a frightening experience for the victim, and we continue to support her.

"We have worked closely with the victim over the past few days to pull together further description in order to produce this e-fit that we hope, just over one-week on from the incident, may help the public recognise this male."

Police are keen to hear from anyone who was in the London Road area at the time of the incident, as well as anyone with dashcam footage.

Anyone with information related to the incident is urged to contact Suffolk police, quoting crime reference number 37/63186/21.
