Police release E-fit of Ipswich teen rapist
POLICE today issued an e-fit likeness of a man they want to trace following an allegation of rape by a 17-year-old girl in Ipswich.
The attack took place at around 7pm on Friday.
The teenager had been out with friends and was walking alone along Landseer Road near to Johnson’s Paint when a dark blue car pulled alongside her.
The man forced her into the car and then drove a short distance to a car park near Ipswich Tyre and Exhaust on the industrial estate on the corner of Landseer Road and Cliff Lane.
He took the victim out of the car, raping her in nearby woodland adjoining Holy Well Road. Afterwards the victim ran on to Cliff Lane and into Oulton Road where she flagged down a member of the public who called the police.
