A woman in an Ipswich restaurant realised her iPhone 6 was missing after being approached by a man trying to sell her Christmas cards, police have said.

The woman was sitting in the restaurant with a friend at the time of the incident.

Police are investigating and have urged witnesses or anyone with any information to come forward.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “The female victim was sitting in the restaurant with her friend, when a man entered and approached her trying to sell Christmas cards. The man was then told by staff to leave.
