Police hunt two men over seafront robbery

POLICE are today appealing for witnesses after two men grabbed and stole a teenager’s handbag as she walked along Felixstowe seafront.

The 18-year-old woman was in Undercliff Road West near the Spa Pavilion theatre between 3pm and 3.30pm yesterday when the incident happened.

She became aware of two men behind her when one suddenly approached, pushed into her and grabbed her black clutch handbag, containing cash and a mobile phone, before fleeing.

The second male, who had been standing on the pedals of a red coloured BMX bike watching the incident, then cycled off behind him.

The woman, who suffered a scratch to her wrist in the incident, then returned home and police were alerted a short time later.
