A man in his 20s was grabbed and told to hand over cash by two men in Norwich..

On Tuesday evening, at around 7pm, a man was walking through the city's Riverside complex when he was approached by two men near the former Coast to Coast restaurant - opposite the Queen of Iceni pub.

One of the men then grabbed him and demanded money from him.

While the victim was able to escape without any money changing hands, police have appealed for any witnesses to the incident.

Both suspects were black and one was described as overweight and of a large build, while the other was slim.
