A man and a woman were punched as they walked in Ipswich at the weekend.

Police are appealing for witnesses following the assault, which took place on Sunday, December 10, just after midnight.

The victims were walking along Foundry Lane when two men walked past them before turning and punching the man in the face.

He was knocked to the ground unconscious and sustained a serious head injury. The woman was also punched by one of the offenders, causing a bruise and swelling.

The East of England Ambulance Service attended and the injured male victim was taken to Ipswich Hospital.
