He pushed her against some bushes and grabbed her around the neck.

The girl kicked out at home before he ran off towards Chalkstone Way.

The man is described as white and 25 to 30 years old. He wore a black hooded top with the hood up, dark blue jeans with a rip in the knee and gloves.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call Pc Carl Edley at Haverhill Police on 101.
