A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: “This was obviously a very nasty incident. The gentleman involved remained very brave throughout his ordeal but it is very important that we trace the two men involved.

“We believe that area would have been busy at the time the incident happened and that somebody may have seen the two figures around the nearby streets.

“We would like to hear from anyone who thinks they have any significant information.”

Anyone who was in the area or who may have information are asked to contact Woodbridge CID on 01473 613500.
