A man has been robbed at kinfepoint by a group of men in a Stowmarket park.

A man in his 20s was walking across the park when he was approached by four men, all dressed in black with their faces covered.
One of the four, who was wearing a balaclava, eye goggles, gloves and a Nike Air hooded jumper, demanded the victim’s wallet.
