The trial of two men and a teenager accused of a string of offences including attempted robbery will take place in October.

Before Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on Tuesday, May 14 were Gheorghe Dumitru, 20, of London Road, Ipswich, Cristi Bahica, 23, of no fixed address and a 17-year-old youth, who cannot be identified because of his age.
