October 14, 2014, 3:05 pm

Police in Lowestoft are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed in the town.

The incident happened along an underpass leading to Belvedere Road in Lowestoft sometime between 11.20pm and midnight on Saturday 11 October.

A 31 year old man was walking along the underpass when he was approached by two men who asked him for a cigarette. When the man removed some tobacco from his pocket he was hit across his hand with a metal object. He bent over in pain and was then pushed to the ground.

His wallet and tobacco were taken from him and the men made off towards Belvedere Road.

The victim went to James Paget Hospital and assessed for his injuries. He sustained a suspected dislocated thumb which may require pinning.

The men were both white and in their 20s of slim build and approximately 510 tall with dark hair. They wore dark jeans and Caterpillar style boots.

If you were in the area and witnessed this incident or recognise the men from the description you are asked to call DC Paul Quantrill at Lowestoft CID on 101 quoting LO/14/5286 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
