FOUR youths attempted to rob an 18-year-old man as he walked through a Lowestoft alleyway.
Police are seeking witnesses after the teenager was assaulted in the Peddars Way area around 9.10pm on Monday.
The teenager had been walking in the park at the back of Montgomery Avenue heading towards Hollingsworth Road, and had passed two people walking a Boxer-type dog, when he became aware of the youths following behind him.
He sped up but was grabbed by the group in the alleyway leading to Peddars Court. After a brief verbal exchange, the four youths rummaged through his pockets and one attacked him.
