Information is being sought after three teens, one carrying a knife, demanded money from a man in Ipswich in an attempted robbery.

The incident happened at about 9pm on Sunday when a 46-year-old man was approached by three males while he was walking in Stoppard Court.

One of the males got out what appeared to be a small knife and demanded money from him.

The man refused and walked away. The three males, all described as white and aged between 16 and 18, walked off in the direction of London Road.

The one who had a knife is about 6ft tall, of slim build and spoke with a foreign accent.
