A man was robbed in Bury St Edmunds shortly after withdrawing cash from an ATM at the train station.

Police are appealing for information regarding the incident, which happened just after 5pm on Mildenhall Road near to the A14 road bridge in the town.

The victim, aged in his 30s, withdrew a sum of money from the train station’s cashpoint and was walking home when a group of men approached him from behind.

One of the group threatened the victim and demanded money, and the man was forced to hand over a sum of cash before he ran away from the scene. He was not harmed during the incident.

The suspects are all described as white. It is reported that the main suspect spoke with an English accent and two of other men spoke an eastern European language.

Witnesses or anybody with any information are asked to call Bury CID on 101, quoting reference 37/3582/19. Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
