A camera was stolen from a man who was taking pictures of a medieval church.

The robbery took place on the junction of Colegate and St George's Street in Norwich on Wednesday, August 15, at about 2pm.

It happened while the 34-year-old victim took photographs of St George's Church.

The suspect was carrying a wooden stick before demanding the camera, according to a Norfolk Police spokesman.

While making a second demand, the offender pointed the stick towards the victim before the Nikon D5100 digital SLR was handed over.

The suspect is described as white, of slim build and aged between 30-40 years-old, with short brown spiky hair. He was wearing blue knee-length denim shorts and a t-shirt.

The stolen camera was worth around £270.
