Police are investigating after a 10-year-old boy reported being grabbed by a man in Haverhill.

Officers were called at 4.10pm today about the incident which happened in Greenfields Way in the town a short time earlier.

The boy ran home to report that a man had run up behind him, grabbed his back and tried to pull his trousers down.

The boy was close to the primary school and doctors surgery when the incident happened.

The man is described as black, aged in his 30s or 40s, of average build and was wearing a dark coat and jeans.

Officers are keen to talk to anyone who may have been in the area between 3.15pm and 4.30pm, regardless of whether they saw anything or not.

Witnesses, anyone who saw a man meeting this description in the area or anyone with information should call west Suffolk CID on 101, quoting CAD number 314 of Wednesday, May 17.
