A man had his wallet stolen by two men in a late night robbery.
The incident happened in an underpass leading to Belvedere Road, Lowestoft, between 11.20pm and midnight on Saturday.
A man, 31, was walking along when he was approached by two men who asked him for a cigarette.
When the victim removed some tobacco from his pocket he was hit across his hand with a metal object. He bent over in pain and was then pushed to the ground.
His wallet and tobacco were taken from him and the men made off towards Belvedere Road.
The victim went to James Paget Hospital for treatment, and sustained a suspected dislocated thumb which may require pinning.
The suspects were both white and in their 20s, of slim build and approximately 5ft 10ins tall with dark hair. They wore dark jeans and Caterpillar style boots.
