Three men approached his car, parked on Tayfen Road, with one knocking on the window. When the victim wound it down, he was punched in the face and was left with a black eye.

Mike Nunn, spokesman for Suffolk Police said: "This incident, at around 11pm on Thursday , was a totally unprovoked attack, and we are keen to talk to the three men who approached the car.
