Two teenage girls are reported to have carried out a knife point robbery in Suffolk.

An 18-year-old man was approached by two girls in Lowestoft who are alleged to have threatened him with a small knife, told him to remove his clothes and hand them over.

The man complied with the demands and was said to have been left “shaken but unhurt”.

The two suspects are reported to have fled the scene of the crime, which happened in London Road North at about 3.30pm on Friday.

A 15 year old teenage girl was arrested on suspicion of robbery later that day and taken to Great Yarmouth Police investigation Centre for questioning. She was released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, saw any suspicious activity or has knowledge of the incident should contact Lowestoft on 101 quoting crime reference 37/39043/18.
