ARMED raiders burst into a Suffolk house and attacked a man and a teenager before fleeing with cash, police said today.

The drama unfolded at a home in Laurels End, Beccles, at 10.30am yesterday morning.

A 16-year-old boy answered the door to the two robbers - who claimed to be railway workers - before they forced their way into the house, woke a 59-year-old man and demanded money.

They produced weapons - handguns and a stun device - and attacked the occupants. An 18-year-old woman was also in the house but was unharmed.
