Police are appealing for information after a man was robbed at knifepoint on Ainslie Road.

The 55-year-old was walking down the street between 8.10pm and 8.20pm on Saturday, April 14 when three men approached him and demanded he hand over his mobile phone.

When the victim refused, one of the suspects produced a knife and repeated the threat.

After handing over the phone and providing the offenders with his PIN code, the victim escaped unharmed.

Officers investigating would like to speak to two black females who approached the victim shortly after the event to see if he was okay.

Anyone who witnessed the robbery, or has knowledge of it, should contact Ipswich CID quoting crime number 37/20088/18, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
