Officers were called just after 1.50pm on Saturday 25 March to reports that an elderly woman had been found lying on the floor in her home in Grayson Avenue following a robbery.

The incident is believed to have occurred during the hours of darkness at some point between the evening of Friday 24 March and early Saturday morning, 25 March.

The victim was found conscious but in a serious condition and was taken to James Paget Hospital for treatment. Sadly, the woman died at hospital in the early hours of Monday 27 March.

Subject to confirmation at formal inquest proceedings, the deceased has been identified as Joy Middleditch, aged 82 years.

On Friday 31 March two teenagers, 15 and 14 years old, were arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

The pair have since been released on bail, pending further enquiries to answer on 7 June 2023.
