Three people have been charged after a man in his 60s was robbed at knifepoint in Lowestoft.

The victim received a call at the door at an address in Normanston Drive from a woman asking for his assistance with moving house, at around 7pm on Tuesday, December 13.

After the woman entered his property, two men are then alleged to have burst in to the house, with one holding a knife to the victim's neck and the other apparently holding down the woman.

The man in his 60s handed over his wallet and the men then left, getting into a car waiting nearby.

Police were called and two women were arrested in connection with this incident at around 9.20pm on Tuesday evening, followed by a man on Wednesday, December 14.
