DETECTIVES are hoping to identify one of four young men who committed a street robbery in Harlow after releasing an efit of him.

The attack happened when four young men and a young woman approached a 21-year-old local man on Second Avenue shortly after 11pm on Tuesday, May 13 and asked him for a cigarette lighter. They then stole £70 from him before chasing him, tripping him to the ground as they did so.

Investigating Officer, Dc Louise Howell, said: “We believe this boy or young man lives in the town so he should be known to friends and family who see this efit. They should contact us. He and his friends need to be caught before they have the opportunity to target another person in the town.”

The assailant is described as being in his late teens or early 20s and had been wearing a hoody, jean and dirty trainers at the time. All five attackers are white.

The man sustained minor leg injuries, but did not require any medical treatment.

Anyone with information in connection with this robbery or who knows the identity of the young man in the efit is urged to contact detectives at Harlow police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
