Colchester: Woman Robbed of £10
Essex police has released an E-fit of a man they are looking for after a woman was robbed in Colchester.
It happened outside "top shops" on the Greenstead Estate on Wednesday August 8th, but the crime has only recently been reported.
The victim, who is in her fifties, was pinned against her car as she was getting out and the men demanded money to let her go.
She handed over £10 and the offender then walked off and stood by the phone box near the library.
Anyone who thinks they may recognise the E-fit, or who has any information about this incident, is asked please to contact Dc Hannah Richardson at Colchester Police on 101, or you can leave information anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
