A 22-YEAR-OLD man was kicked in the back as he tried to fend off a robber who stole his mobile phone in Ipswich.

As the man approached the junction with Lacey Street, opposite St Helens School, he was pushed in the back and fell to the ground. When he tried to get up he was kicked in the back.

The offender then grabbed the victim's bag and ran off with another man down Woodbridge Road, towards the town.
