Police are looking for witnesses after a woman tried to fend off a robber after she made a takeaway delivery.

The incident happened at around 9.30pm on Friday in St Lukes Terrace shortly after the victim, a woman in her 20s, had made a takeaway delivery.

The victim got back into her car and at this point a man opened the passenger door, leaned in and demanded cash.

The suspect made an attempt to steal the victim's phone but she managed to fend him off, resulting in the robbery stealing £70 in cash and bank cards and the victim's driving licence. He was seen to run off with another man. Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or was in the area on Friday night and may have seen two men acting suspiciously.

Witnesses should contact Detective Constable Gill Dawson at Great Yarmouth CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
