The victim, who's in his 20s, was approached by two men "of middle Eastern appearance" while he was out jogging on Squires Hill in July.

He was then threatened with a knife before the men got away in a car, believed to be a dark coloured people carrier.

Police say they've received a number of calls regarding the e-fit images, including names of the suspects too.

We’re very pleased with the initial response following the programme.

We’ve received just over 20 calls and officers are in the process of reviewing the quality of this information and prioritising potential leads.

There has been some names put forward following last night’s appeal and these will be investigated and cross referenced with information we already hold.

– Det Supt Durham, Norfolk police

They are continuing to appeal for anyone who can identify the vehicles seen in the CCTV image from a nearby shop.
