Detectives are appealing for more information following a robbery on Oxford Street in Liverpool.
At around 5.15am on Saturday 30th October, the victim, a man in his 20s, was approached by a man armed with a knife who stole several items from him including an Iphone, an Apple Watch, Air Pod pros, a ring, his bank cards and train tickets.
The man then took the victim to a cash machine and ordered him to withdraw a quantity of cash. After he was unable to withdraw any cash from the machine the victim managed to escape and fled the scene.
No one was injured during the incident but the man was left seriously distressed after the ordeal.
Extensive CCTV and witness enquiries were carried out at the time of the incident.
The offender is described as a black man in his late 20s, 5ft 9in tall of slim build and was wearing a black puffer coat at the time.
Detective Inspector Chris Saidi said: “Protecting people in our communities is one of our main priorities and such violence like this will never be tolerated on the streets of Merseyside.
“Although months has passed since this incident we are determined to find the person responsible and bring them to justice.
“We think the man described may have information to assist our investigation so I would encourage him or anyone who knows him to come forward. If you were out on Oxford Street in the early hours of Saturday 30th October and witnessed the incident or anything suspicious and have captured images of the man, please contact police as a matter of urgency.”
