Police are appealing for witnesses after a 32-year-old woman, was robbed at knife point, on Thursday, July 24.

The victim was with her small child on Oak road at 8.45pm when an Asian man threatened to assault her if she did not hand over her cash.

He is described as 28 to 32 years old, with a chubby build, 5’7” tall with short cropped hair and stubble, he wore a green t-shirt and blue jeans. Call 101 if you have any information.

Detective Sergeant Simon Hancock said: ”Clearly this was a shocking experience and the victim was so frightened that she felt she had to comply with the offender’s demands as she was concerned for the safety of her child as well as herself.

“Luckily she was not injured during this ordeal but we need people to come forward and help identify this man to stop him from targeting other people within our communities.”
