A CCTV image of a man wanted in connection with the theft and assault of a woman in Beccles has been released by police.

After taking money out of an ATM, a woman in her late 70s was shoved by a male who then took the cash.

The incident happened at about 9.15am on Friday, December 3, 2021.

Thought to have left the scene in a silver Golf, the suspect is described as white aged in his 20s or 30s and about 5ft 5 tall.

He was of slim build and spoke with an eastern European accent.

Subsequent police enquiries established that the suspect stole £500, not £50 as initially reported at the time.
