A man in his 50s was knocked unconscious in the street during a robbery in a Suffolk town.

The incident happened in Edinburgh Road, Lowestoft between 12.15am and 12.30am on Thursday, June 14, when the victim was hit on the head from behind.

It is believed at least two people attacked the man who then received further blows to the face and head before he blacked out. When he regained consciousness the offenders had left the scene and the man made his way home.

The next day the victim realised his bracelet, watch and necklace were missing, presumed stolen during the incident.

He sustained bruises to his face and scratches and grazes to his back and arms which required medical treatment.

Witnesses or anybody with information should Lowestoft CID on 101 quoting reference 32722/18, or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through the website.
