A gang of eight men attacked a cyclist in a Suffolk nature reserve.

The incident happened between 7.15pm and 8pm on May 10 in Tayfen Meadow behind King Edward VI School in Bury St Edmunds.

A Suffolk police spokesman said a man on a red bike was approached by a group of about eight men who punched and kicked him and stole his mobile phone, tobacco and personal documents.

The victim then left the nature reserve and a female suspect reportedly swung a punch at him but did not connect.

Anyone who has any information about these incidents is asked to contact Suffolk police, quoting crime references 37/28352/22 or 37/36249/22.
