Knifepoint robbery in Leigh-on-Sea

Police are appealing for information after a man was robbed at knifepoint in Leigh-on-Sea on Friday November 8.

The victim, a man aged in his 20s, was approached on Dawlish Drive at around 4.15pm by a man he did not recognise.

He was taken into an alleyway just before the turning for Elm Road, where he was threatened with a knife and forced to hand over a three-figure sum of cash.

The culprit wore all black and had his face covered, including wearing sunglasses. He wore distinct red and black Yeezy trainers and left the scene in a small white car, which may have had a chequered roof. The car turned back towards Pall Mall.

Anyone with information about this individual, or incident, is asked to call Southend CID on 101 and quote the crime reference number 42/178187/19.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
