Two attackers demanding money fled after one of them hit their victim on the head in an attempted robbery.

The pair approached the man aged in his late 40s while he was walking along an alleyway between St Bartholomew Road and Colneys Close, in the direction of Sudbury town centre, at around 10.45pm on Saturday, December 22.

Following a brief altercation, the two men fled the scene.
