"Too close to home", "Very worrying" and "Shocking!"

Some of the reactions after KLFM broke the news a woman in West Acre was threatened at knifepoint.

She was walking near Narford Road at around 11:40am on Wednesday (17th April) when it happened.

A man approached her and demanded that she should hand over her phone.

But the offender didn't manage to take anything during the incident.

The woman thankfully was not harmed.

Many people in the area are worried that this happened in broad daylight.

It's somewhere that lots of dog walkers come to enjoy the rural area.

Norfolk Police have launched an investigation and are asking anyone with information about the incident to call King's Lynn CID on 101.
