An investigation has been launched after a man was robbed in Lynn yesterday afternoon.

Police say the victim, who is in his 30s, was walking along a cycle path off Tennyson Avenue at around 5.15pm on Monday when he was approached by two men who asked for “a light.”

One of the men is described as white, 6ft 4 to 6ft 6 tall and of large build. He had shaved blonde or light brown hair and was wearing a white jumper with grey speckles, white jeans and white trainers.

The other man is said to be white, 5ft 8 to 5ft 10 tall and of medium build. He was wearing a dark blue tracksuit with white stripes on the arms and legs, white trainers and had a hood over his head.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has information about it, is asked to contact Det Con Sam Harris, of Lynn CID, on 101.
