Caister: Man Threatened With BB Gun During Attempted Robbery

Norfolk Police are issuing an e-fit likeness of a man following an attempted armed robbery in Caister.

It happened on Friday 25 July at about 10.35am in Eastern Avenue when a man cold called at an address and forced his way into the property.

The intruder, described as white and aged between 20 and 30, claimed to be looking for another man and was searching rooms when he was challenged by the householder.

The suspect threatened the victim with what is believed to be a BB gun before demanding money. The resident refused, stating he didn’t have any cash and went to grab the phone and the offender has left the scene.

Officers are keen to speak with anyone who may recognise the man in this image or who may have witnessed anyone acting suspiciously in the area around the time stated.

Anyone with any information should contact Det Con Gavin Rivett at Great Yarmouth CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
