A pair of 11-year-old boys were walking in Lowestoft when two men chased them down an alleyway.

The boys were on their way home when the men obstructed them in the alley between St Peters Street and Love Road yesterday at about 3.35pm.

The men stood near the entrance and told the youngsters to stop, putting their arms out to try and prevent them going any further. The boys ignored them and continued on their way to Wollaston Road before the men began running after them which caused the boys to panic.

But the men failed to catch the boys who then reported the incident to police.

Both men are described as white and in their 20s. One had stubble and wore a grey hooded top, a black hat and also wore a red poppy while the other was wearing a black t-shirt and was carrying an orange carrier bag.
