Police are appealing for witnesses after a man and woman were robbed in Ipswich.
The incident happened in Hawes Street, near to the roundabout which turns into Wherstead Road, at approximately 1.30am this morning.
A man and a woman have been approached by two men on bicycles. The woman was pushed against the wall and the man pushed to the floor.
One of the men demanded money from the woman, before searching her handbag and stealing an amount of cash.
