A MAN was assaulted by two would-be robbers in the early hours of this morning.
The incident happened in Nacton Road, Ipswich, near the roundabout at about 12.40am.
The 21-year-old victim was walking in the street when a dark coloured Vauxhall Corsa containing a female passenger stopped nearby in the road.

The second suspect was white, about 20-years-old, of a slim build, about 5ft 5ins, with short dark hair and was wearing a grey hooded top.
