DETECTIVES are appealing for information following a robbery in Suffolk.

Raiders struck at Pennys off-licence in Norwich Road, Lowestoft, on Saturday evening.

Two people wearing masks - both believed to be male - entered the store at around 7.35pm, approached the man behind the counter and demanded he hand over cash.

One of the robbers appeared to be carrying a hammer.

As the till was opened one of the two grabbed notes and the other man took a box for staff tips from the counter before they both fled.

No one was hurt in the incident.
