A teenage boy has reported being sexually assaulted by a man who “grabbed his bottom” in Suffolk.

The boy was standing beside a bicycle in Lovewell Road, Lowestoft, when the man is said to have approached him from behind and grabbed him before walking away in the direction of Beaconsfield Road.

Police said the incident happened at around 8.50am on Tuesday, September 12, and involved a man, possibly in his 80s, who was wearing a brown suit jacket and trousers, black shoes and two hearing aids.

“Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen anyone matching this description in the area at the time stated, or who may have information to assist the investigation,” a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said.

Anyone with information about the alleged assault is asked to help by calling the Incident and Crime Management Hub at Suffolk Police on 101 quoting reference 60994/17.
