A WOMAN had a lucky escape when two men in high visibility jackets tried to force their way into her car before one of them indecently exposed himself.

The incident happened on Tuesday on the B1116 road at Dennington, near Framlingham, around 4.30pm.

The 42-year-old woman was driving along the road from the Laxfield direction when she noticed two men wearing high visibility jackets.

One of the men was standing in the middle of the road and he gestured for her to slow down.

As she slowed to a stop one of the men went to open the passenger side door, but she quickly locked her vehicle.

She then noticed the other man was indecently exposing himself.

The woman drove off and looked back to see the two men get into the car and travel towards Stradbroke.

Police need to trace the men and are asking anyone with information about who they are to get in touch.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said: “On the face of it this would appear to be quite a serious incident and we are keen to trace the two men involved.

“Given they were wearing high visibility jackets it is possible they were seen by other motorists and we would urge anyone who thinks they might be able to help to get in touch.

“On this occasion nothing untoward happened because the woman drove away. However we need to speak to these men as soon as possible.”

One of the men is described as mixed race, around 6ft tall, in his mid 30s to early 40s, with pitted skin and very short dark hair. As well as his high visibility jacket he was also wearing dark coloured bottoms and boots.

The second man is described as white, slightly older - in his late 30s to 40s, around 5ft7ins tall and of “stumpy” build, with stubble on his face.

Anyone who thinks they might be able to help should contact PC 1572 Flint at Suffolk Constabulary on 01986 835300.
