Two men threatened an 18-year-old woman with a screwdriver before barging into her home in Ipswich and making demands for cash.

The aggravated burglary happened at around 7.30pm on Saturday, December 29, at a property in Finbars Walk.

According to a spokesman for Suffolk police, a suspect knocked on the door of the woman’s home and asked if a man called ‘James’ lived there.

When the 18-year-old woman turned him away, he returned with a second man.

They entered the house while threatening the woman with a screwdriver.

The two suspects then ransacked the house while demanding cash from the victim.

She handed over £200 from her purse.

A police spokesman added: “It is believed that other cash and jewellery has been taken along with victim’s mobile phone. “No-one was hurt in the incident.”

The first suspect is described as about 5ft 10 ins tall with blonde or light brown hair and aged in his early or mid-twenties.

He was slim and wearing a grey hooded top and grey jogging bottoms.

The second male was described as slightly older than the first male.

He was wearing all black, a black hooded top, and also had the lower part of his face covered.

He had short dark hair and was possibly also wearing gloves.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour at around the time of the incident or has any knowledge of the incident should contact Ipswich CID on 101 quoting crime reference 37/82163/17 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

It may be one of the country’s greatest beauty spots - but some plants spotted by an eage-eyed police community support officer (PCSO) on a popular beach were not quite as natural as they first seemed.

The family of Clive Wyard have described him as “a man who helped everyone he could and wanted nothing in return.”
