A man in his 50s was knocked unconscious in the street during an early morning robbery in Lowestoft.

The incident happened in Edinburgh Road between 12.15am and 12.30am on Thursday, June 14, when the victim, a man in his 50s, was hit on the head from behind.

It is believed that 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 offender/s had left the scene and the man made his way home.

The next day the victim realised that 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. Alternatively contact the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their website at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
