    Police have released an E-fit image of a man they want to trace in connection with a rape in Great Ryburgh.

    It relates to an incident that happened at around 3pm on Sunday 28 February 2021 in an area of disused rail track off Mill Road in Great Ryburgh. The victim, a teenage girl, was assaulted by an unknown man.

    Officers have now released an E-fit image of a man they would like to trace in connection with the incident. The man is described as white, approximately 6ft tall, aged roughly in his 50s with balding grey hair and moustache.

    Police are keen to speak with anyone who may recognise this man. They are also keen to speak with walkers, horse riders and drivers who were in the area around the time of the incident.

    A public portal has been set-up encouraging witnesses or anyone with information to come forward. The portal enables information to be submitted directly to the Major Investigation Team.

    You can access the portal here: https://mipp.police.uk/operation/363719P01-PO1

    Detective Chief Inspector Phill Gray on the Major Investigation Team said: "We are continuing to pursue a number of lines of enquiry and have spoken with witnesses who were in the area at the time as well as conducting house to house enquiries. An investigation to trace the suspect is ongoing and specialist officers continue to support the victim.

    “It is understandable that incidents like this are likely to cause concern amongst the local community, especially as the issues around women’s safety have been highlighted nationally following the tragic circumstances surrounding the kidnap and murder of Sarah Everard.

    “However, In Norfolk, incidents of this nature are rare.

    “I would like to reassure members of the public that we continue to work around the clock to ensure that this incident is fully investigated by the Major Investigation Team, with assistance from the National Crime Agency. We encourage members of the community to engage with local officers in the area, in order to raise any concerns, they may have.

    "We would like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area throughout the day. It was very sunny and therefore it is likely that people were taking the opportunity to get some fresh air or exercise and may have seen this man in the area. We would also encourage anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage of the Great Ryburgh area during the times stated, to come forward.”

    Anyone with information should submit this through the portal or contact the Major Investigation Team through a dedicated phone line on 0800 056 0944.''

    E-fit issued of man suspected of raping teenager near old rail track
    "We must be careful not to allow people to fear crime disproportionately or allow it to affect their lives."

    DCI Gray said that of violent crimes reported to Norfolk police in the past 12 months, none had been identified as being committed by a stranger. He said the Great Ryburgh rape was the only rape in Norfolk police had identified as being committed by a stranger in the past 12 months. ''

    "It was very sunny and therefore it is likely that people were taking the opportunity to get some fresh air or exercise and may have seen this man in the area. We would also encourage anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage of the Great Ryburgh area during the times stated to come forward.''

    DCI Gray said he had a team of around 20 officers and police staff, all of whom were working full time on the case. He added: "We've also got beat managers and local officers who will be continuing reassurance patrols and specialist officers who are supporting the victim."

    ''The team can also be reached via a dedicated phone line, 0800 056 0944.''

    I am one of the inhabitants of Great Ryburgh - I was REALLY surprised this was picked up on here.

    This event has unnerved our village and several others near by. I have lived in the village for 17 years, and I worked in the village prior to that - so daily connections to the village go back to 1993 - whilst I know of the railway line, I did not even know it could be accessed from Mill Lane. The main access to the path of the old railway is usually via a gate, on the main road through the village, very close to the village shop. The victim probably didn't think twice about using the track, as many of the local residents have dogs, and this is a very popular place for people to walk them.

    B&Bs are almost all closed (except for long-term residents) at the moment due to our national lockdown, so this is not likely to play a factor.

    We do have a few small businesses in the vicinity, but the main industry is a maltings (Crisp Maltings Ltd - processes barley into malt for the brewing/distilling industries). This is quite a massive plant - they have their own transport fleet for domestic deliveries, but they conduct a lot of export, with container lorries, and of course farmers from throughout the region deliver the malt to be processed - therefore there are numerous lorry drivers that go through the village. The plant is a 24 hour a day, 365 day a year operation (on numerous shift systems) - but the weigh-bridge generally does not operate on weekends. So the plant would be down to minimal staff and there would be unlikely to be any lorry traffic during that time.

    Welcome to Ws EternalHope and especially to this thread, it is helpful having a local person onboard!

    Thanks for this really useful local insight. I can imagine it's a shock, especially considering how small the community it is.

    I was wondering about how much through traffic such a small place would have so interesting to know about Crisp Maltings. I'm in hospitality myself and I know B&B's are permitted to accept guests that need to stay for work purposes. Not sure if there's much need for that for people coming and going to the local businesses but if there's long distance lorry drivers in the area for instance.

    Personally I don't see a similarity. The e-fit for this case - the man is described as balding. The other man clearly has a full head of (short) hair. Even if you shave it off you don't look balding you look like you've shaved your head. Very different ages too. MOO

    The age of the woman on the flashing incident could explain the difference in the age perception. A teenage girl would think that a 50 year old is older than 50. When I was a kid, my age perception was skewed towards guessing adults were much older than they really were. My height perception was also skewed towards thinking adults were taller than they really were.
