Police are appealing for information after two people were robbed at knife point on a train.

The robbery happened on a train waiting at Lowestoft Railway Station at about 8pm yesterday. A man walked onto the train waiting in the station, spoke to a 20-year-old man and 21-year-old woman on the train and then pulled out a knife. He threatened them into handing over their wallets and he then got off the train.

Both wallets were later found in the Hervey Street area of Lowestoft.

The offender was white, of medium build, with tattoos on both arms and was wearing a black T-shirt and jeans.
