Take a look at those who were put behind bars this week in Suffolk.

A teenager has been jailed for almost three years after pleading guilty to a sexual assault.

Sinan Mehmedov, 19, of no fixed address, approached his 25-year-old victim after a night out.

He came across as friendly to begin with but then tried to kiss her so she walked away, this then turned into a run as she realised Mehmedov was following her. After a while the victim looked behind her and could no longer see him so went back to walking, it was then that Mehmedov reappeared and pushed her into a ditch and sexually assaulted her.

A father was jailed for nine years after he stabbed his victim in the stomach.
