Police in Nottingham have released a CCTV picture of a youth they wish to speak to about a robbery.

A 23-year-old man was threatened with a knife by an Asian youth, thought to be aged between 16 and 17, on Harlaxton Drive in the Lenton area of the city.

The man was forced to handover his mobile phone and cash before the youth ran off in the direction of Derby Road.

Officers say a youth seen on CCTV in Trinity Square the following night, 7 May, could have information.

The victim described the youth who robbed him as about 5ft 8in tall and of a slim build. He was clean shaven, had short, black hair, big eyes, a saucer-shaped face and small but prominent ears.

The youth is also believed to have a Midlands accent and was wearing a white, loose-fitting T-shirt with a black and white printed design, loose-fitting dark blue jeans, and a thick, silver chain.

Anyone with information about the robbery should contact Nottinghamshire Police.
