Two men were due to appear at Lowestoft magistrates court this morning charged with robbery following an incident at a home in the town's High Street on Tuesday evening (April 9).
Police were called after reports that an 18-year-old man had been threatened and assaulted and items including a safe and a games console had been stolen from his home about 7pm to 7.30pm.
Several people have been arrested in connection with this incident and two – Ryan Pooley, 18, of Hollingsworth Road, and Clint Scott, 20, from Lowestoft High Street – have now been charged with robbery.
