A teenager was forced to take off his shoes and some of his clothes by robbers after they stole games, tobacco and cash from him.
The 17-year-old was walking along Regent Road in Great Yarmouth towards South Market Road when a black hatchback car stopped near him. Two men inside the car got out and approached him and then pushed him into an alleyway. They made demands before searching the teen and stealing three PlayStation games from him, some tobacco, a bottle of water and a small amount of cash.
They then made the victim take off some of his outer clothing and his shoes before he was able to run away. The teen was not injured during the robbery, which happened between 7.30pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday, but police are now appealing for information. The first suspect is described as white and aged between 17 and 18-years-old, the second suspect is described as white and aged between 30 and 40.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone with information should call DS Mark Joyce on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
