Ipswich – Assault appeal

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted in north-west Ipswich last week.

The incident occurred at around 3pm on Wednesday 15 May at a bus shelter in Meredith Road.

The victim – aged in his 20s – was waiting for a bus when he was approached by a man who grabbed his face and then put him a headlock-style hold and shouted at him. Another man who appeared to be known to the suspect then shouted at him to stop.

The victim did not suffer any injuries as a result of this incident, but caused him pain and left him shaken.

The suspect is described as white, aged in his 40s, short, of a large build, with grey hair which was straight at the sides and curly on top. He was wearing a blue jacket, dark blue tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.

Officers would like to hear from any witnesses to the incident and are also keen to trace the man who shouted at the suspect to stop.
