Four people have been charged following a burglary which saw £440 stolen from a man punched in his face.

Shortly before 5am on Friday, May 15, a group attended a property on Trafalgar Street, in Lowestoft, where they gained entry through a communal door.

The group of four then knocked on a door to wake up the victim inside who answered the door, before the group entered the flat.
