Police release E-fit of two men wanted in connection with attempted robbery in Bury St Edmunds
Police have released E-Fit images of two men they would like to trace in connection with a violent attempted robbery in Bury St Edmunds.
Between 5.15pm and 5.30pm on Tuesday, August 18, a 17-year-old boy was walking along a trail between Symonds Road and Abbey Gardens when, around the half-way point near to an open area, he noticed a group of three men and a woman were walking towards him.
As they drew level, the victim was punched in the face by one of the men and then surrounded by the rest of the group.
The man then demanded his phone and wallet, which the victim refused before managing to force one of the other men out of his way and escape.
The victim sustained minor injuries to his jaw as a result of this incident.
Police are issuing E-fit likenesses of two men they would like to speak to in connection with this incident.
The first is described as white, aged between 23 and 26 years old, around 6ft tall, of skinny build, with light-coloured shaven hair and wearing a grey hooded top with sweat pants.
The man in the second E-fit is described as white, also aged between 23 and 26 years, around 5ft 9in tall, of medium build, with black shaven hair and wearing a black hooded top.
