An attempted robbery of a woman in Sudbury on Friday has set off police appeal for witnesses.

The incident took place at about 11.45am on November 9, on a footpath between Cornard Road and Newton Road.

A woman aged in her 40s had been walking her dog along this path, when she was approached by a man in his early 20s, who demanded she hand over her mobile phone.

The dog then jumped up, causing the woman to fall over, and when she returned to her feet, the man had disappeared.

The man is described as standing between 6 ft and 6 ft 2 ins tall, and having a tanned complexion and a deep voice. He was wearing a black hoodie and black clothing.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101, quoting the crime reference 37/65029/18.
