Detectives have launched an investigation after a man was robbed at knifepoint in Colchester.
Two men stopped the victim on the footpath from Clingoe Hill leading to Britten Close at around 4.20pm yesterday.
They threatened him with a knife and poked him in the stomach, an Essex Police spokesman said.
The victim, in his 20s and from Colchester, handed over his laptop in a bag, a phone and cash.
The suspects, described as white with local accents, then ran off, leaving the victim shaken but unharmed.
The first is aged between 16 and 20, with light brown short hair and a pale freckled complexion.
He was wearing a hooded top which was pulled around his head over a light grey tracksuit. He had dark brown shoes and was carrying a stick.
