Woman robbed at cashpoint by man with a knife

Posted on 15th October 2014

A woman had cash that she had just withdrawn from an ATM stolen by a robber with a knife.

The 22-year-old victim was standing at a cashpoint outside Sainsbury’s Local in Boyer Street, Derby, when a man approached her from behind.

He then leant in front of the victim as her cash was being dispensed and snatched the small amount of money she had withdrawn.

The robber had a ‘Stanley’ style knife with a one inch blade and, when he leant in front of the victim, he caused a small cut on one of her hands.

The victim was not seriously injured but was left shaken by the incident, which happened at about 7.30pm on Tuesday, October 14.

The offender was black, in his late-20s, about 5ft8in or 9in, and of slim to medium build. He wore a mustard coloured hoodie or coat with dark trousers/jeans and dark footwear.

After taking the money, he ran off along Farm Street and onto Wood Street.

Detectives investigating the robbery want to hear from anyone who recognises the description or saw the offender in the area.

Witnesses to the offence or anyone with information should call Derbyshire police on 101, quoting incident 648 of October 14.
