Third accosting in a week, but incidents are not being linked

Monday, 4th February 2013.

A third accosting in a week has taken place in Haverhill, but police are not linking the incidents.

Two 15-year-old girls were walking along Eastern Avenue and into nBeech Grove around 4.15pm on Saturday when they moticed a man following them.

They crossed over the road and he did the same. This happened four times and in the end, the girls were so scared they knocked on the door of a house and sought sanctuary there.

The man is described as white, aged 35 of big build with brown hair.

Haverhill police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area and witnessed anything or recognises the description, on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Last Tuesday morning a 13-year-old girl was approached by a man in Wortham Place on the Chalkstone estate and on Wednesday night a woman putting out her rubbish was picked up by a man and carried off until her dog barked and he dropped her and ran away.

Haverhill's police chief, Insp Peter Ferrie said they were not inking the incidents in any way, but he encouraged people to report any such incidents, to help police to apprehend offenders.

"We treat all such reports seriously and will deal with them on their merits," he said.

"We would advise women who may be worried not to go down any lonely alleyways or paths on their own.

"Make sure people know where you are going and when you expect to arrive, and carry a charged up mobile phone with you so you can call police in case of any concerns."
