POLICE are appealing for information after a man grabbed a woman in Haverhill.

The incident happened at 10.50pm on Wednesday in Tower Court, Haverhill.

The 33-year-old woman was putting out her rubbish into a wheelie bin when a man who was whistling approached her from behind.

The man wrapped his arms around her, picked her up and carried her a short distance down the road and then dropped her down when her dog went for him and he ran off.

The man is described as of medium build, 5ft 7ins, wearing a dark hooded top, dark jogging bottoms and white trainers.

Were you in the area? Did you see this man or do you recognise him from the description? If so you are asked to call Pc Guy Ainsworth at Haverhill Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
