A teenager was robbed and threatened with assault after being approached by a gang of four outside Suffolk New College.

Two boys, aged 13 and 14, have been arrested after a teenager was robbed near to the college on Rope Walk in Ipswich.

The 14-year-old victim was approached by four teenagers on Thursday night at around 7.40pm, who asked if he was listening to music.

One of the teenagers then grabbed the victim’s mobile phone and headphones from his hand, before handing both back with the threat that he would be assaulted if he went after the group.

Two teenagers, aged 13 and 14, have both been arrested on suspicion of robbery and taken to Marltesham Police investigation Centre for questioning, where they remain.

Officers believe that several members of the public walked past the group around the time of the incident, which took place on a path near to the ‘Goals’ football pitches at the college, and are keen to speak to them as potential witnesses.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or saw any suspicious activity should contact Ipswich CID on 101, quoting crime reference 37/52646/18.
