Lowestoft men threatened with a knife in aggravated burglary

DETECTIVES are hunting two men after an aggravated burglary incident at a home in Lowestoft.

A 30-year-old man was at the house in St Peters Street about 7.30pm last night (Monday, March 14) with two friends when two men – described of thin to medium build and wearing dark coloured sports clothing with their faces partially covered - entered via an unlocked door.

The two burglars became aggressive, shouting and threatening the occupants with what appeared to be a knife. They appeared to know the 30-year-old man's name and were abusive towards him before stealing a computer from the premises. This was later found abandoned at the top of Princes Road.

'Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area around this time who saw or heard anything that may help enquiries into the incident, including anyone who may have seen someone carrying the computer equipment,' a police spokesman said. 'Officers would also like to speak to anyone with information about the men involved.'
