Police are appealing for witnesses following a robbery in Ipswich.

The incident took place at approximately 6.25pm on Saturday 21 September in Westbury Road.

The victim – a woman aged in her 60s – was reversing her car onto a driveway in Westbury Road when two boys approached her car. One of boys then opened the door, demanded she got out and threatened her with a knife.

The victim got out of the car and the suspects then got in and drove off towards Rushmere Road.

As a result of the incident, the woman was left shaken but was physically unharmed.

The first suspect is described as male, approximately 12-years-old,  of a small build, between 4ft 10ins and 5ft 2ins, with dark hair and dark eyes. He was wearing a multi-coloured t-shirt and blue shorts.
