A 56-YEAR-OLD man had his wallet stolen yesterday as he walked past Lowestoft bus station.

Police are seeking witnesses to the theft, which happened around noon on Wednesday.

The man was walking up past the bus stops at the bus station in Gordon Road when he was approached by a white man, in his late teens to early 20s, around 5ft 7ins tall, of slim build, with short dark hair wearing a black woolly hat, a dark top and dark jeans, who asked him for a cigarette.

Moments later the thief reached over and took the 56-year-old's light brown leather wallet, containing cash and cards, from his pocket before running off along Gordon Road.

Police need to speak to anyone who was in the area of the bus station around this time yesterday, or anyone with information about the thief.
