A man was forced to strip at knifepoint by a pair of teenage girls who then ran off with his clothes.

The incident took place on London Road North, Lowestoft at around 3.30pm on Friday, July 13.

The 18-year-old victim was approached by two girls who made threats to him with a small knife and told him to remove and hand over his clothes.

The pair then ran away with the clothes.

The man was left shaken but unhurt in the incident.

A 15-year-old girl was arrested on suspicion of robbery later the same 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 police on 101 quoting crime reference 37/39043/18.
