Young man is robbed in Ipswich

A 22-year-old man has been robbed of his mobile phone in Belstead Road in Ipswich, near St Mary’s Church, in the early hours of this morning.

He was walking home at about 1.15am and listening to music when he noticed two people in front of him - a man described as white with dark curly hair wearing a large pair of earphones and an older lady in front.

Moments later he heard a shout and was then approached by two other men who had a Rottweiler dog with them and came from the Rectory Road direction.

One of the men demanded he hand over phone and both offenders then produced knives.

The 22-year-old was threatened and, fearing for his safety, handed over his black Sony mobile phone.
