Ipswich: Man attacked twice and robbed

TWO men are being hunted by police after a man was assaulted twice and then robbed in Ipswich early today.

The 23-year-old victim was walking along Tuddenham Road at around 2.30am when he was knocked to the ground from behind and attacked by two men who then ran off towards the town centre.

Two male passers-by helped the victim up and made sure he was not hurt. The man then continued on his way and the pair who helped him walked off towards the Ipswich Cemetery.

A couple of minutes later the original two men returned and assaulted the victim again, demanding his wallet and mobile phone, which he handed over. The men then left towards the town centre again.

The victim suffered minor head injuries and received treatment at Ipswich Hospital.
