AN IPSWICH woman today told how she saw the victim of an unprovoked attack with blood streaming down his face.

It comes after police made an appeal for witnesses to the assault on a man in Rectory Road at 10 pm on Thursday.

"I had just got out of my car and I saw this guy walk down the road and into the flats," said 24-year-old Elizabeth Malster, who lives in the street.

"He looked at me and had blood on his face."

The 29-year-old man was walking home from Rectory Road and in the direction of Station Street.

He heard laughter and footsteps behind him. When he looked round a man punched him in the face. The victim fell to the floor and a second man kicked him in the stomach.

The man managed to stand up and went home where the police and ambulance service were called. The victim was taken to hospital and received treatment for two cuts to his face.

The two offenders are described as a white male, 20 – 25 years old, 6ft tall with a tanned complexion and short dark brown hair.

One was of stocky build and was wearing dark clothing and a gold chain around his neck.

The second man is a white male, 20 to 25 years old, he was of medium build and had short fair hair.

At the time he was wearing blue stone washed jeans and a dark knee length sports coat with stripes on the arms.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may recognise the offenders from the description.

Calls should be made to Det Con Steve Corbet at Ipswich CID on 01473 – 383133, or Crimestoppers on 0800 – 555111.
