Police want to trace man after 11-Year-Old Approached Near Oasis Academy
Do You Recognise This Man?
Police have released an e-fit of the suspect in a robbery that happened in Emsworth.
It happened close to the Tesco store in North Street on Friday, September 30.
At about 11pm a 17-year-old-boy was walking along the road when he was approached by a man. This man threatened the victim with a knife that had a blade of several inches, and led him into Seagull Lane close by, demanding that the victim
give him all his property. When the victim stated he had none the suspect told him to take off his clothes. The victim stripped to his underwear and the suspect took the rest of his clothes, before running to a small hatchback car that was parked at the entrance to Emsworth railway station. He got into the passenger seat and the car was driven away in the direction of West Leigh.
The victim was not harmed in the incident.
The suspect is described as:
-5ft 8ins tall
-Wearing a bright white Adidas hooded top, Adidas blue tracksuit bottoms with a white stripe running down the outside, and white trainers
Detective Constable Simon Poulter said:
"This is a serious incident, and we want to track the offender down as quickly as possible. Fortunately, it is also a very rare incident and this kind of robbery is highly unusual. We are hoping that the public can identify this man and help us bring him to justice.
"We would ask that people take a close look at the e-fit, and if they recognise the suspect they should contact us as soon as possible. Additionally, anyone who was in the area at the time and saw the robbery take place should get in touch. There are likely to have been people around who may have seen it."
Anyone with information should contact Waterlooville CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
