A teenage girl who tripped while trying to run away a man following her and some friends shone a light in his face to escape after he exposed himself and performed a lewd act.

The three girls, aged between 12 and 15, had entered an alleyway called Rigbourne Hill in Beccles, opposite to the Co-Op at the junction with High Leas.

When walking along the alley they became aware of a man following behind them.

They began to run but one of the girls tripped over and at this point she then saw that he was exposing himself and committing a lewd act.

The victim then shone the torch on her mobile phone in his face and he turned away and ran back down the alley towards Swines Green.
