A man was held at knife point and punched as armed robbers raided his Halesworth home.

The robbers entered the house in Lansbury Road shortly before 1.30pm on Thursday, April 18 while a man and woman in their 20s were sat in their living room with a child.

The pair, both men, made demands before holding the man against the wall, threatening him with a knife and punching him in the face before escaping with a stolen mobile phone.

The woman and child were unharmed during the incident, although the man sustained an injury to his mouth following the punch.

Police say the first suspect is male, 6ft and of slim build, wearing a grey hoodie with dark jogging bottoms and trainers.
