A man police want to speak to in connection with an attempted burglary in Ipswich town centre almost three weeks ago is still being treated for serious injuries in hospital.

The 42-year-old was found with head injuries at the rear of outdoor clothing store Hawkshead in the Buttermarket at around 4.45am on December 10.

He was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Ipswich Hospital and transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge in a coma.

Police initially described his injuries as life-threatening after his apparent fall from the clothing store. The injured man was discovered after a member of Hawkhead’s staff was called out after a burglar alarm went off.

But a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary today said: “His injuries are no longer thought to be life-threatening but could still be life-changing. He is still seriously ill.”
