A 43-year-old woman was left shaken after she was sexually assaulted as she walked home alone in Great Yarmouth.
The attack happened at about 8.25pm on New Year's Day in Steam Mill Lane, close to its junction with Bridge Road and the Haven Bridge.
Earlier the victim had been accompanied by a male friend when the two spoke to a group of teenagers outside the convenience store, formerly the Londis shop, in Mill Road, before she then continued on her own and was assaulted minutes later.
The attacker grabbed the woman and pushed her against a wall before subjecting her to a sexually motivated assault.
