Police are appealing for witnesses after two men wielding a knife and a baseball bat damaged the door of a building in Lowestoft.

The incident, which happened at around 8.40pm yesterday on Raglan Street, is believed to be a targeted attack after the two men drove a Ford Focus at speed down the street towards a property.

The men are then believed to have shouted before a door was damaged by one of them, with the men then returning to the car and reversing away down the road.

Suffolk Police said one of the men was described as wearing a red or orange crash helmet with a black hooded or long sleeve top and either black tracksuit bottoms or jeans, and was believed to be in possession of a knife.

The other man is described as white with brown hair, wearing a beige T-shirt and jeans and was believed to be holding a baseball bat.
