A man arrested in connection with an incident in Diss where a woman was sexually assaulted has been bailed.

It followed an incident on Saturday between 10.30pm and 10.50pm when a man entered a home through an insecure back door.

The intruder then physically assaulted the female householder, who managed to fight off her attacker. The suspect fled the scene, running out of the back door.

A man in his 20s was later arrested in connection with the incident and was questioned by detectives at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre.

He has now been released until May 18 while enquiries continue.

Police are still appealing for information from anyone who may have seen or heard anything unusual in the area on Saturday night.

Anyone with information should contact Norwich CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
