A 17-year-old boy was attacked with a baseball bat during a late night robbery.

The incident occured at around 10.30pm in Banham Road, Beccles, on Thursday, January 11.

The victim was walking home when a black Peugeot 206 pulled in front of him with three people inside.

Two men got out of the car wearing tracksuits and black balaclavas - one was armed with a baseball bat.

They struck the victim in the lower left leg with the bat and then hit him over the side of the head causing a small cut and swelling.

The men took a bag containing a fluorescent jacket, his mobile phone and a 50 gram pouch of amber leaf tobacco from his front jacket pocket.

Both are described as being over 6ft tall and of stocky build.

Anyone with information or who saw any suspicious activity should contact Lowestoft CID on 101 quoting crime reference 37/2210/18 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
