A man from Bedfordshire who was arrested in connection with a series of burglaries across Suffolk this year has been released on bail.
Violence was used in three of the five burglaries, including a robbery in Tattingstone last week where a 70-year-old man was assaulted.
On January 12 a victim was pushed over and a wallet was stolen at a house in High Street, Cavendish.
A victim was also pushed during a house burglary in Hervey Road, Bury St Edmunds, on January 7.
On March 7, burglars were disturbed at a house in Falmouth Avenue, Newmarket.
The following day, there was an attempted burglary of a house in Brookview, off Belstead Road, Ipswich.
Offenders were disturbed trying to force open the back door and brandished a crowbar at the victim.
The Tattingstone robbery took place at a house in Church Road on March 16.
The elderly occupant was assaulted and a quantity of cash was stolen.
An 18-year-old from Luton was arrested on suspicion of these offences last night (March 22) and brought to Bury Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
He has since been bailed to return to Bury PIC on May 25 pending further enquiries.
