A man was attacked after trying to prevent two men from stealing a remote control car from his shed. 

Police are appealing for witnesses after the incident occurred between 11.30pm and 11.55pm on Tuesday, May 25 at an address in Smallgate, Beccles. 

A shed at the property was broken into and a large remote control car with ‘Rockstar’ stickers on it was stolen from inside.

The offenders were challenged by the victim who attempted to stop them, but they pushed him off causing minor injuries before running away with the car.

The suspects are described as two white men, aged in their 20s and wearing dark clothing.
