A robber who threatened a teenage boy with a knife and stole his bicycle in Ipswich is being sought by police.

Suffolk Constabulary has released an e-fit of a man they would like to speak to following the attack in Princes Street on Sunday, February 4.

A 15-year-old boy was cycling when a stranger shouted at him and told him to stop outside ZAK’s car wash.

The male culprit pulled out a knife and ordered the boy to hand over his bike, described as a bright orange, Carrera men’s mountain bicycle.

The victim dropped the bike to the floor and the man picked it up and cycled in the direction of Ipswich Railway Station.
