Attempted sex attack in Bury St Edmunds

Have your say

POLICE are appealing for information following an attempted sexual assault on a woman in Bury St Edmunds in the early hours of Sunday.

Between 4am and 5am, a 26-year-old woman was walking in the town centre through the car park of The Black Boy pub when she saw a person.

Once she got to the pavement on St Andrew’s Street South, she ended up on the floor and the man attempted to sexually assault her.

She screamed, and a taxi appeared so the man ran off.

The woman was shaken but unhurt.

The man is described as wearing a black hooded top and black trainers.

Officers want to speak to anyone who was in this area at the time and may have seen the man before or after the incident, and also want to speak to the taxi driver.

Calls should be made to PC Lisa Yorke at Bury St Edmunds Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
