A man was threatened with a knife during a street robbery.

Around 11.15pm on Thursday, March 21, the 23-year-old victim was walking along Dale Street in Lancaster when he was approached from behind by a man.

The man demanded property and when the victim said he didn’t have any the man said he had a knife, at which point the victim gave him his iPhone.

The offender is described as around six foot tall, of average build and was wearing a black hooded top with the hood up and black tracksuit bottoms.

He ran off up Primrose Street.

DC Trevor Walker said: “If anybody was in the area around the time of this incident who may have any information they think could help us then I would urge them to come forward.

“I am also keen to speak with anybody who has any information at all about this incident.”
