Police have released a CCTV image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the attempted robbery of two women in Colchester.

According to a spokesman for Essex police, the victims, aged 19 and 20, were walking across the bridge in Colne causeway at around 3.50am on Thursday, November 22, when they were approached by a man.

He demanded they hand over their phones and property but when they told him they did not have anything, he left the scene.

A police spokesman added: “We want to speak to the man pictured as part of our enquiries.

“We appreciate it is not the clearest image but hope someone might have seen him.”

If you have any information that could assist officers in their investigation contact Colchester CID on 101 quoting reference 42/170550/18.
