The hunt for a man who chased another man at knifepoint through south Lowestoft has now been closed.

Police had issued an appeal for witnesses in the hunt for a man who "produced a knife" on another man he was speaking with.

It happened between 3pm and 3.15pm on Saturday, July 31, in Kirkley.

The victim, a man in his 20s, was walking along Mill Road when he was approached by an unknown man who tried to speak to him.

When the victim walked away, the suspect is reported to have produced a knife.

The victim then fled into the KFC restaurant on Marine Parade where staff called police.

He was not hurt in the incident.

This week, a police spokesman said: "All of the enquiries were completed and the investigation has been finalised but will be reopened if any new information comes to light."
