Derby robbery detective appeals for potential victim to come forward.

Posted on 26th April 2017

One of our robbery detectives in Derby is appealing for a potential city centre victim to come forward. 

The appeal comes after enquiries in to a robbery have revealed another potential victim. The incident happened at about 1am in the morning of Monday, March 13. on St Peters Street, Derby. 

PC Alex Pierrepoint explains: “During our enquiries in to another incident we have viewed what may be a robbery on CCTV. The possible victim appears to have been followed from the Assembly Rooms, across the Market Place and up on to St Peter’s Street where he has been pushed aggressively.” 

The possible victim is described as a white man, around 35-55 years of age. He is about 5’ 10” tall, slim build with long dark hair that appears to be tied back. He is wearing slim, dark trousers or jeans and a light coloured jacket. He seems to be carrying a large art type folder under his arm. 

PC Pierrepoint continues: “We believe this attack may be linked to another in the city for which we have arrested and interviewed a suspect and so we would very much like to talk to this potential victim.” 

If you think this may be you, or you have any information about this incident please contact Alex on 101.  Alternatively send him a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
