Police are releasing an E-Fit image after a man was threatened with a knife in Little Wratting.

The incident occurred between 9.25pm and 10pm on Saturday 26 April in a parking area off Haverhill Road.

The victim, a man in his late twenties, had gone out to his car to fetch his prescription that he forgotten to bring in earlier, when he was confronted by a man who threatened him with a knife.

After ordering the victim to open the boot and doors so he could search the car, the offender saw the bag containing the prescription medication which he then stole, along with some cash that the victim had turned out of his pockets.

The victim was then ordered to sit in the car and put the seat belt on and the offender then made his escape. The victim was left distressed but unharmed as a result of this incident.

The suspect is described as a white man aged in his late 30s to early 40s, around 5ft 10in tall, of skinny build with blonde hair. He was wearing a black mask, dark hooded top with the hood up, dark jeans and gloves and ‘Caterpillar’ style boots. He is described as speaking with an accent believed to be Irish.
