Police are appealing for information after a 33-year-old man was the victim of an attempted knife-point robbery in the early hours of Thursday 30 October.

“The suspect is described as a white male, 5ft, 9” tall, short brown hair and what are described as bright coloured eyes. He was wearing a turquoise coloured tracksuit top, dark coloured trousers and white trainers.

“The suspect was seen by the victim earlier in the evening when he was riding a dark coloured BMX-type bike.”
