Stranger Sex Attack

The Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team are investigating the circumstances surrounding the report of a stranger sex attack on a lone female in London Road near Elveden, Suffolk on 9th November 2021

Details of Incident

Detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances following the attempted sexual assault of a woman in Elveden.


The incident occurred at some point between 11am and 12pm, Tuesday 9th November, along London Road known locally as the old London Road/old A11 junction from the A11 southbound towards Elveden Road.


The victim - a young woman - was out jogging along a footpath, where she was approached by the male and assaulted.  The woman was hit to the head and the male attempted to pull down her leggings.  He then left the area in an unknown direction.


The suspect is described as male, approximately 5ft 9ins tall, had brown stubble on his face and he was heard speaking with an English accent.  He was also wearing a black puffer jacket with the hood up and was seen with a bike.


The woman, who was found unconscious and lying on the pavement by a member of the public, was taken via ambulance to hospital, where she was treated and later discharged.


Road closures and a scene remain in place in London Road and the nearby area while officers and forensic teams continue to carry out further work at the scene.  The closures are expected to remain in place until 11th November.


Detectives would like to hear from any witnesses who were in the London Road area, particularly between the slip road junction with the A11 southbound and the Elveden Road junction, either walking or cycling between 10am and 1pm yesterday, Tuesday 9th November, or any motorists that passed through and have a dashcam fitted in their vehicle.
