It happened in Derby Road shortly after 7pm yesterday when two men, with scarves covering their faces, approached a group of five male teenagers and one female teenager on the platform.

One of the men produced a knife and the other demanded property. Three mobile phones, an iPod and tobacco were stolen from the victims.

A 20-year-old man from London is currently in custody after being arrested on suspicion of robbery.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen two men, with scarves covering their faces, in the area around the time.

  • Make your mind up woman, on the platform of Ipswich station or in Burrell Road? Has this reporter ever been to Ipswich? Shambolic reporting.

  • The whole report is guesswork as it actually happened on the approach steps to Derby Road Station. Well at least Derby Road station is in Ipswich I suppose!

  • "It happened in Burrell Road" - "On THE platform"??? Must the Ipswich Star insist on asking people who know nothing about Ipswich to write articles?!
