Police “exploring links” between a vandalised car and an assault on a woman in Bury St Edmunds

Police are appealing for witnesses to an incident of criminal damage in Bury St Edmunds.

It happened on Friday 29 May at just after 10pm on Worcester Close in the town.

It was reported a male had been seen to be spray painting a grey Audi A6 car with what was described as a green liquid, while another male was seen acting as ‘look out’

One suspect is described as wearing a black half balaclava and a grey tracksuit with the hood up and he was about six foot tall. The second suspect, the apparent ‘look-out’, is described as five foot four inches tall and was wearing a red and grey hooded top.

Officers are exploring links to an assault of a woman in Bury St Edmunds that took place on Wednesday 27 May also in Worcester Close. The victim – a woman aged in her 50s – was unloading her car when she saw an unknown male walking towards her. He then punched her in the shoulder, causing her to fall and graze her elbow. Nothing was stolen.

Anyone who has knowledge of who was responsible for the criminal damage should contact Bury St Edmunds police, quoting crime reference 37/29525/20.
