Colchester: Do you recognise this man?

THIS is the man Essex Police want to speak to in connection with a robbery in Colchester.

The E-fit has been released after a woman was pinned against her car and told that she would only be released if she handed over her money.

The woman, who was in her fifties, gave the man �10.

The incident happened outside the “top shops” (near the Tanning Shop, 1 The Centre, Fivefields Court) on the Greenstead Estate in Colchester on Wednesday August 8 at about 2pm, but has only been reported more recently.

A police spokesman said: “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.”
