Knife threat in King's Lynn robbery attempt

A woman aged in her 80s was threatened with a knife during an attempted robbery at her Norfolk home.

The victim was at home in Columbia Way, King's Lynn, on Thursday night when she answered to the door to a woman.

She was threatened with a knife and pushed to the floor before the woman left empty-handed.

Officers believe the same woman had called on neighbouring addresses beforehand and appealed to anyone who was approached to contact officers.
