Detectives in Sheffield are asking for your help to identify the man in this CCTV image, who they believe could hold vital information about the robbery of a young man.
 
Sometime between 3.40-4am on Saturday 3 August, a 22-year-old man was walking home along Ecclesall Road after a night out when he was approached by a man unknown to him.
 
The man is said to have told the victim to withdraw money from the bank, and pulled a knife out of his pocket when the victim refused to do so.
 
Detective Constable Yvonne Fairbrother, investigating, said: “The suspect is then reported to have walked the victim to the Berkeley Precinct, where he withdrew £20, which the suspect took.
 
“He then walked the victim to Tesco on Sharrow Lane, forcing him to withdraw a further £20. The victim then ran from the area.
 
“Since the incident was reported, we have carried out extensive enquiries to try and identify the person involved and I’m now asking for your help to identify the man pictured.
