Police have released an e-fit of a suspect wanted in connection with an attempted robbery in Oakridge Park last month.

The image release relates to an incident that took place between 2.15pm and 2.30pm on Monday 2 October when the victim, a man in his twenties, was walking from ASDA at Oakridge Park to Stantonbury via Railway walk.

The victim was threatened by a man with a pair of kitchen scissors, who demanded money.

The offender subsequently ran off towards the roundabout then back to the wooded area by the traffic lights next to ASDA where he again interacted with the victim who had continued walking.

The victim and offender were on opposite sides of Saxon Street next to the traffic lights, but then offender ran across the roundabout and out of sight.

Nothing was stolen during the incident.
