Police are still hunting those responsible for two sexual assaults in Lowestoft.

Earlier this month two women reported being sexually assaulted in the town within the space of two weeks, with police previously looking for links between the attacks.

The first occurred in an alleyway between Field View Drive and Barnards Meadow, when an 18-year-old woman was grabbed from behind and knocked to the ground before being sexually touched and physically assaulted by a man.

Two weeks later a 16-year-old girl was sexually assaulted in Crown Meadow Walk one-mile away.

She was touched on the leg by a man walking behind her and when she turned around he sexually assaulted her.
