A man was threatened with a knife on a Leamington street last night (Monday), before the robber then stole his wallet.

The robber - described as white, about 40 years old, 5 ft 5 ins tall, of broad build and with a chubby face and stubble - confronted the victim between Binswood Avenue and Trinity Street at around 8.30pm.

The victim, who was not injured, told police officers that the offender had a local accent and was wearing a grey hoody with the hood up and a blue and white patterned jacket. He is thought to have been carrying a black handled chef’s knife.
