A 45-year-old man has suffered a suspected broken nose following an attempted robbery in an alleyway in south Lowestoft.

The 45-year-old had crossed Mill Road and turned left into the service road/alleyway that leads towards Florence Terrace, off St John's Road, about 6.40pm to 6.50pm last night (Monday), when he saw two teenage boys walking towards him.

As they approached one of the boys demanded his rucksack. When the 45-year-old refused he was pushed backwards and fell to the ground. It's thought an attempt was made to take the rucksack before the two fled.

The 45-year-old suffered a cut to his nose and was checked over by ambulance personnel who believe his nose may have been broken in the incident.

Both men are thought to be in their early to mid-teens with one described as white, about 5ft 3ins to 5ft 4ins tall, of slim build, wearing a hooded top, possibly dark blue in colour, with the hood up, and the other white, taller at about 5ft 8ins or 5ft 9ins tall, of stockier build, wearing a grey coloured tracksuit top with the hood up.
