A person was robbed at knifepoint in their own home after a burglar smashed a bathroom window to gain entry to their flat.
The incident happened in the property above the Rose & Crown pub in Whiting Street, Bury St Edmunds, around 1.50am Friday, March 20.
It is said the burglar smashed through a bathroom window on the first floor to gain access into the flat, where he brandished a knife and demanded money after being challenged by a resident inside.
The victim handed over an undisclosed amount of cash before the burglar escaped on foot through the kitchen door into the garden.
The burglar is described as a white man, around 5ft 11in tall, of an average build and with a tanned complexion.
It is believed he is around 30 years old, and was wearing a khaki green hooded jacket and gloves.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said enquiries into the incident are ongoing.
