Police have made door-to-door enquiries and carried out CCTV analysis as part of investigations into the rape of a woman behind a church.

The incident took place just before 9.30pm on Saturday near St Margaret’s Church, Bolton Lane, Ipswich.

A woman in her 30s, was in the churchyard when approached from behind by a man, who pulled her to the ground and raped her, before leaving towards Cobbold Street via the front of the church.

The man is described as having an Eastern European accent, possibly Russian.

Two men arrested in connection with the incident have been released under investigation, while the victim is supported by specially trained officers.

Extensive CCTV, house-to-house and forensic work are being conducted as part of the investigation, and officers are appealing for anyone with information, dash cam, mobile phone or private CCTV footage to call 101 quoting reference 34621/18.
