Mother threatened with knife as she walked with young daughter in Ipswich
A knife was brandished in an attempted robbery on a mother as she walked with her three-year-old daughter in Ipswich yesterday.
The incident took place between 2.20pm and 2.30pm yesterday in Stoke Park Drive, opposite the entrance to Bourne Park.
The victim, a woman aged in her forties, was walking along the pavement pushing her young daughter in a buggy, when she was approached by a man and a woman who demanded money from her.
Both suspects used threatening behaviour towards the victim, with the woman holding what was described as a bread knife.
The victim did not hand over any money and screamed out for help, at which point the suspects ran off in the direction of the entrance to Bourne Park.
