A 30-year-old man accused of an attempted robbery during which a “vulnerable” man was assaulted in the early hours of the morning will be sentenced next month.
Police were called to an address on Fir Lane in Lowestoft at around 1.10am on Tuesday, April 30, following reports a man had entered a property via an open window.
Once inside he threatened and assaulted the occupant, demanding money.
A struggle ensued and the intruder left empty-handed.
The victim, a man in his 50s, suffered minor injuries and was treated by paramedics at the scene.
