An investigation has been launched following an attempted robbery at the post office in Denver yesterday, Tuesday, February 10.
Detectives say a man, who is believed to have been armed with a rock, entered the store in Downham Road at around 6.30am and demanded money.
The manager refused and told the man to leave. He then fled, without stealing anything, in the direction of the village church.
The man, who is believed to be in his early to mid 20s, is described as white, between 5ft 10 and six feet and of slim build.
He was wearing a dark hooded jacket, which was pulled up around his face, and carrying a dark duffle bag.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information about it is asked to contact Det Con Chris Parnham, of Lynn CID, via the non-emergency 101 number (calls cost 15p).
Witnesses can also give information by phoning Crimestoppers free on 0800 555111.
