Lowestoft: Aggravated Burglary Arrest

27 August 2012, 18:24

A 36-year-old man has been arrested by officers investigating an aggravated burglary incident at a home in Cambridge Road in Lowestoft in the early hours of this morning, Monday 27 August.

Police attended the property just after 2.40am this morning after a member of the public heard shouting coming from the address and found two women - a 28-year-old and the 47-year-old - with head injuries.

Both women were initially taken to the James Paget hospital. The 28-year-old woman has now been discharged after treatment for a gash to her head and a broken arm. The 47-year-old was transferred to Addenbrookes hospital where she is in the intensive care unit with serious injuries including a fractured skull.

Throughout the day police have been making enquiries into the incident and the 36-year-old was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery a short time ago.

He has been taken into custody where he will be interviewed by officers. 

A cordon remains in place at the home in Cambridge Road and the investigation is continuing.

Police are still actively seeking others in connection with the incident and are asking anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area in the early hours, or anyone with information about those involved to call Lowestoft CID on 101.
