Three teenagers have been arrested in Great Yarmouth after an incident which saw police dogs and the force’s drone used.
Police arrested the three on suspicion of attempted robbery on the night of Thursday, November 29.
Officers had been called to St George’s Park at about 5.30pm that day following reports an 18-year-old woman had been approached by two suspects riding mopeds, one with a passenger, who demanded her phone.
The victim and her friends ran off and suspects left the scene, riding through the park towards King Street.
Nothing was stolen and no one was injured.
Enquiries later led officers to arrest three males, two aged 15 and one 16, on suspicion of attempted robbery.
The suspects were arrested shortly before 8pm in Yarmouth and remain in police custody.
Great Yarmouth police had tweeted about the arrests to explain why there was “a lot” of police activity in the town that night.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact Great Yarmouth CID on 101.
