This must have been very distressing for those involved and I want to reassure the victims and those that live locally that we are doing everything we can to find the offenders quickly.

I do believe this is connected to Operation Gravity drug dealing and would ask anyone with information regarding those involved to contact the police immediately.

– Inspector Graham Dalton, Norfolk Police

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information concerning it should contact Norfolk Police on 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
