POLICE are trying to track down two men who approached girls in Lowestoft and Kessingland earlier this week.

On Saturday, a 19-year-old woman was walking along Church Road in Kessingland near the junction with Wash Lane when a red sporty car passed her and pulled up in front of her.

The driver got out and asked her if she wanted to get in the car. The woman refused and continued on her way but the man persisted. He then got back in the car and followed her into Wash Lane before driving off.

The white man is in his 40s to early 50s, about 6ft 2ins tall, of thick-set muscular build, with short neat crew cut hair and wearing light-coloured trousers and a light-coloured polo shirt.

In Lowestoft, a 13-year-old girl was walking along Norwich Road between 6.30pm and 6.50pm on Monday when she became aware of a man walking behind her.

The white man, in his late 30s to 40s, was wearing a black hooded top, a black hat and black tracksuit bottoms when he shouted out to her.

She ran and hid in an alleyway and the man appeared initially to follow her but then went past where she was hiding.

The police appeals follow three other similar incidents in Lowestoft earlier this month. Suffolk police spokesman Anne-Marie Breach said: “We are not linking the incidents at the moment, but obviously people need to be aware. “The men involved should contact police, as should anyone who saw any of the incidents or who thinks they know the men.

“If you are approached by a stranger, try to ignore them. “If you feel unsafe, call 999 straight away and try to get the registration number of the car,” she added.

Anyone with information should contact Lowestoft police on 01986 835300.
