Suffolk Constabulary are appealing for witnesses after a robbery took place in Lowestoft.

The incident happened mid afternoon on January 2 on Raglan Street. It was reported to police at about 3.15pm the same day.

The male victim of the robbery was driving a grey Peugeot 207 and had pulled over to call his girlfriend.

He says that two male approached his vehicle from the front.

One male entered his car from the front passenger door and the other male from the rear right passenger door.

Both males threatened the victim with a knife and took £200 in cash and a mobile phone before fleeing the scene in the direction of the Factory Arms pub.

One suspect is desribed as being five foot 10 inches tall, aged between 17 and 20 years old, wearing a blue hooded top and light grey tracksuit bottoms.

The second suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, around five foot 10 inches tall and was wearing a black shellsuit jacket, tracksuit bottoms and was wearing a creamy brown bandana around his face.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour in the area or has knowledge of the incident should contact Lowestoft CID on 101 quoting crime reference 37/343/18 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
