The 16-year-old was walking along the yellow brick road next to the river between 7.30pm and 7.45pm.

As she approached the area around Fred Winter House, she noticed a man holding a black bag and a bottle of alcohol.

As the girl passed, he asked if she would like a drink.

She told him to leave her alone and carried on walking, but the man then began to follow her.

The girl sped up and hid in an alleyway leading to Bill Rickaby Drive for a few minutes.

As she began to leave, the man appeared and approached her.

He grabbed the girl’s arm and again offered her a drink, which she declined. He then proceeded to pull open her coat before she pushed him away and ran off, shaken but unharmed.

The man is described as white, of medium build, around 5ft 6ins, aged 40 to 50 years old, with a beard, a round face and a deep voice.

He was wearing a long dark blue puffa jacket and a dirty white baseball cap.

Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to contact the Mildenhall Response Team on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
