Police are appealing for witnesses or information following an incident of theft from a motor vehicle in Ipswich. 

The incident occurred between 6am and 6.30am on Friday 4 October outside a property in Kerry Avenue. 

The victim – a man in his 30s – heard a car alarm and as he went outside to check, he saw a male suspect leaning against his car and a window was smashed. 

The suspect, who was holding a knife, then verbally threatened the victim before cycling away on a black mountain bike. 

An amount of loose change was stolen from within the vehicle. 

The victim was left shaken but was physically unharmed. 

The male suspect is described as a white, approximately 5ft 8 or 9ins, of slim build and with a small amount of facial hair. He was wearing a black jacket and blue denim jeans. 

Officers would be keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the incident, particularly any motorists who may have seen a male matching this description in the vicinity of Kerry Avenue between 5pm and 7pm. 

Anyone with any information about this incident or anyone travelling in the area that may have captured relevant dash-cam footage should contact Suffolk police by quoting crime reference: 37/60178/19
