Police quiz two men

TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of attempting to steal a 65-year-old woman’s handbag in a busy market place.

The incident took place on Sudbury Market Hill at around 10.15am on Thursday.

The woman was with a friend when she noticed someone pulling on the zip on her bag. She confronted the man and he walked away. Nothing was stolen.

A second man was also seen with the would-be thief.

A 35-year-old man and a 30-year-old man, both from Ilford, have since been questioned by police and released on bail.

They are due to return to Bury St Edmunds Police Station on May 29.
