POLICE are hunting three men who robbed a man after claiming they were selling a motorbike.

The victim went to a track behind the BP petrol station on the southbound A11 at Thetford believing he was meeting someone who was selling a motorcycle.

Instead he was approached by three men who pulled him from his own bike, punched him in the face and stole a “substantial” amount of money.

The 51-year-old needed treatment for cuts and bruises after the robbery on Friday at 1.30pm.

All the attackers were wearing dark clothing and had hidden their faces.
