A man had his phone, cash and passport stolen after a group of males forced him off a road into a secluded area in Lowestoft.

The robbery happened on Tuesday, January 4, as the 20-year-old victim walked along Yarmouth Road, near Station Road. 

He was approached by three men near the Tramways - also known as Linear Park - when he was forced into a secluded area behind some trees.

He was then threatened and had his Google Pixel phone, a quantity of cash and his passport stolen.

The suspects are described as being about 6ft in height, in their mid-20s and wearing face masks.

One was wearing a red winter coat with no hood, and the other two suspects were wearing black jackets with hoods.

Witnesses or anyone with information is urged to contact Suffolk Police quoting reference number 37/684/22 by calling 101, through their website here or emailing

People who use the Tramways have recently made calls for extra police patrols in the area due to an increase in anti-social behaviour, including joyriding.
