Essex Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was threatened with a knife in Clacton yesterday.

The incident happened at 10.45am in the Pier Avenue area of the town close to the seafront on Friday, February 22.

It’s reported that the threat was made following an argument between two men, following which one pulled out a knife and threatened to stab the other.

The victim of the threat was able to escape the scene uninjured.

An Essex Police spokesman said they are looking for a man believed to be in his early 20s, of slim build and 5ft 10ins tall. He is said to have short, scruffy light-brown hair and a grey goatee-style beard, and was wearing a blue tracksuit and a dark coloured rucksack.
