A man's been threatened by a man holding a two-inch blade in Norwich.

It happened on Saturday 23 February at some point between 10.20pm and 10.30pm.

The victim was walking alone along Earlham Road towards the junction of Heigham Road. As he got to the island in the middle of Heigham Road he saw a female and male blocking his way. He stepped round them and got around six foot past when he heard the male say 'Give us your wallet'. 

When the victim turned around he saw the male had a small two inch blade in his hand. He is described as in his early to mid 20s, was wearing a grey hooded top and a red body warmer over the top. The male refused and carried on his way without being followed or persued.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has knowledge of it should contact DC Mark Joyce at Bethel Street CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
