A man has been robbed at knifepoint after two men entered his car and stole £200 in Lowestoft.

The incident occurred on Raglan Street mid-afternoon on Tuesday and was reported to police at 3.19pm.

The victim, a 21-year-old man, was driving his grey Peugeot 207 when he pulled over to make a call to his girlfriend.

He said two men then approached his vehicle from the front.

The victim was unhurt.
