A takeaway driver was robbed of his iPhone, cash and his delivery by a group of men in Lowestoft.

The incident happened between 9pm and 9.30pm on January 15 in Bramble Green.

A spokeswoman from Suffolk Police said the driver, in his 30s, parked nearby and went to an address to deliver food.

“However the resident hadn’t ordered anything and moments later, as he left the address, the victim saw three men – described as white, in their late teens to mid 20s and wearing dark hooded tops with the hoods up – approaching him,” she said.

“Two of them appeared to be holding knives and the victim was then threatened and searched. A silver iPhone, a small amount of cash and the food were stolen before all three ran off.”
