Suspect in Ipswich gunpoint robbery and discharge of firearm will face no action
A 34-year-old man arrested in connection with a gunpoint robbery and the alleged discharge of a firearm on Ipswich’s Chantry estate will not be charged.
A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said the suspect for the robbery in Manchester Road – who is from London - has been released from bail due to insufficient evidence.
The incidents occurred at around 8.30pm on February 1.
Police were called to reports that three men forced their way into a house and demanded money from the occupants threatening them with a handgun in the process.
The men left the house taking a quantity of money and made off in a car towards Tesco pursued by the victim. Stuart McConnachie, in his car.
