Knifepoint robbery

Have your say

A 21-YEAR-OLD man was robbed at knifepoint in Bury St Edmunds just days before Christmas.

The victim was walking from a friend’s house at about 5.45pm on Thursday December 22 when a man approached him at the junction of West Road and Priors Avenue.

The man was wearing a navy Nike hooded top and brandished a kitchen knife.

He asked for cash, became verbally abusive and waved the knife in a threatening manner.

The man, aged 20 to 25, took the victim’s money and watch before running down the hill in West Road.

He is described as 5ft 10in, of medium build with a croaky and husky voice.

Anyone with information should call CID on 101.
