POLICE are appealing for information following an assault at the University of East Anglia.
The incident took place at around 1.10am on Sunday, March 8, as the 19-year-old victim walked home from an event on the campus.
As the woman neared the Sainsbury centre she was grabbed from behind by a man who ran away when she screamed.
Suzanne Crannage, spokeswoman for Norfolk Constabulary, said: “Although the incident took place in the early hours officers believe there could have been a number of people in the area at the time coming back from pubs and clubs.
“The description of the attacker is quite distinctive and we would like to hear from anyone who recognises the description or who may have been approached in a similar way.”
The man is believed to have followed the victim for some distance before grabbing her. He was described as being white, in his early 20s, wearing a white shirt that was not tucked in, dark jeans and a trilby hat.
