Three young women were threatened during a robbery in Lowestoft on Thursday evening.

Three females, aged 16, 18 and 20, were at a house in May Road at about 8.20pm when three males barged in, shouting and threatening the females, and asking after another person who was not present.

The 16-year-old was then assaulted, causing pain but no injury.

The males searched the premises and stole cash before leaving. On their way out they saw another male approaching and chased after him, but gave up at the May Road junction with Love Road.
