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.
The incident occurred at around 9.15pm on Wednesday, October 25.
Police are now appealing for witnesses to the incident, with the suspect described as white, aged between 25 and 30 years old, approximately 5ft 5in tall, of thin build and with short curly light brown hair.
