Police are seeking witnesses after an 85-year-old man was robbed in Lorne Park Road, Lowestoft.

A 36-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the incident, after cash was stolen from the pensioner between 4pm and 5.15pm yesterday (Monday, January 6).

The 85-year-old was uninjured in the incident. The 36-year-old has now been bailed to return to police on February 12, pending further inquiries.

It’s thought several locals came to the man’s assistance and police need to talk to anyone who was there.

Detectives are keen to speak to a woman in a light coloured vehicle and others who approached the 85-year-old to check on him.

■ If you were there, please call Det Con 872 Millard at Lowestoft CID on 101.
