Detectives investigating an armed robbery in a village have released an e-fit of a suspect they want to speak to.

A man mugged a woman in Deadman’s Ash Lane in Sarratt just before midday on Thursday, April 23.

The suspect threatened the woman with a concealed weapon – believed to be a knife – before stealing her handbag and running off in an unknown direction.

The woman, aged in her 30s, was not injured during the incident.

Despite an extensive police search, the offender has not been found.

He is described as a black man with a very thin face, approximately 5ft 8in tall, aged around 35 and of thin to medium build.

He was wearing dark blue clothing and a dark blue beanie hat with a lighter blue band around it.

Detective Inspector Phil Moss said: “Thankfully the victim was not hurt but has understandably been left quite shaken by what happened.

“We are doing all we can to trace the person responsible and I would ask that anyone who thinks they may recognise the person pictured contacts me immediately.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DI Moss via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference C2/15/907.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
