11-year-old girl followed in Lowestoft

POLICE need to trace a group of five men after an 11-year-old girl was followed in Lowestoft.

Witnesses are also being sought to the incident in Love Road about 3.45pm yesterday (Monday, September 27).

The 11-year-old girl was walking along the road when she noticed the group and one of the men – described as white, in his 20s to early 30s, wearing a white baseball cap and a grey hooded top, with the hood pulled over the cap – called out to her.

He then followed her, and as she quickened her pace he did as well. The girl then went into an alleyway and the man ran past. The 11-year-old returned home and reported the incident.
