Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery in Ipswich.

It took place Thursday 11 July at some point between 12.30am and 12.45am outside the Chantry post office on Hawthorn Drive.

The male victim, aged in his mid-50s, was with a male he vaguely knows as ‘Robert’ – they met at the victim’s home and in attendance was an acquaintance of ‘Robert’ who was described as a black male – the three then walked to the cashpoint outside the post office.

After withdrawing £100 in cash the victim was pulled backwards by his coat causing him to land on the ground. The black male then took the cash. The victim managed to grab the offender’s tracksuit bottoms and grabbed his bank card back. The offender then fled the scene with the money. The victim was unhurt.
The black male is described as slim, just under six foot and his tracksuit bottoms were described as possibly grey and he was wearing a t-shirt.

The male known as ’Robert’ was white, about 40 years old, unshaven, wearing jeans and possibly wearing a t-shirt.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has knowledge of it should contact Ipswich CID quoting crime reference 37/40505/19
