IMAGES have been released of a man police want to speak to in connection with sexual assaults on two young girls in busy west Suffolk shops.

The release follows an indecent assault of a 12-year-old girl at the Warehouse Clearance Store in Anglian Lane, Bury St Edmunds between 3.20pm and 3.30pm on Tuesday.

The girl was shopping with her family but browsing alone near the front of the store when a man approached her and touched her inappropriately.

She screamed and he ran off into the car park, got into a dark blue car and drove away the wrong way round the car park.

The man is described as white, in his 40s, 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in tall, with short but messy brown greying hair.

He was wearing large brown/yellow glasses, a black leather jacket, a brown top and possibly walking boots and black trousers. The incident has been linked to a similar sex assault on a 10-year-old girl at WH Smith in Cornhill about an hour before.
