This follows an incident of unlawful imprisonment and assault that took place on Saturday in Lowestoft.

The victim, a teenage boy, was held against his will at an address in Jacobs Street and assaulted by two men over a period of time.

The teenager was then allowed to leave. Having suffered cuts and bruises to his face and head, he had to go to hospital.

Following police inquiries, officers arrested two men late on Tuesday and a third man in the early hours of yesterday morning in connection with the incident.

The men were taken to Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning where they were charged.

The third man charged in connection with the crime, Shinda Lee, 33 of Melbourne Road in Lowestoft, also appeared at the magistrates' court today where he was ordered to pay a fine.
