Man attacked during aggravated burglary in Lowestoft

A Lowestoft man needed hospital treatment after being attacked during an aggravated burglary.

The 52-year-old man was taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston suffering from a possible fractured jaw and cuts and bruises to his face after a home in Aldwyck Way around 1.55am this morning (Wednesday, July 20).

The man was at home with his teenage son and some friends when a security light at the back of the house came home. When the 52-year-old went to investigate he saw a male in his back garden who left when he was spoken to.

Moments later two men barged into the property. The occupants were threatened with weapons, believed to include a knife, and told to hand over cash. Several of those inside the property were assaulted before the offenders left.

One attacker was described as around 5ft 10-11ins tall, in his late teens to 20s, of medium build, wearing dark jogging bottoms, a dark jacket and balaclava-style face mask. The other was slightly older, around 6ft tall, of skinny build, wearing dark grey jogging bottoms and a dark top.
