The incident happened at 10am, between the Bolton lane and Westerfield Road entrances to the park, when a 21-year-old man was approached by a man holding a knife at his side and demanded money.

The 21-year-old handed over his wallet, which contained cards and cash, and the offender ran off in the opposite direction – the man was not injured in the incident.

The offender is described as white, about 6ft tall, about 21-years-old, of large build and he was wearing black jogging bottoms with a white stripe down each leg, a black hooded top and dark coloured scarf.

Two dog walkers were seen in the area at the time of the incident.

If you saw the incident or have any information, call Ipswich Priority Crime Team on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
