A MAN has been robbed at knifepoint by a hooded figure in broad daylight.
Detectives are appealing for information following the attack in an alleyway near Chase Court, Greenstead, Colchester.
A spokesman for Essex Police said: "The victim, a 24-year-old man, turned into a small alleyway when he was approached by a man with a knife who told him to empty his pockets.
"He put his mobile phone on the ground and ran in the opposite direction.
The incident happened between 2.05pm and 2.15pm on Wednesday, November 27."
The suspect is white, aged in his 30s and about 6ft 3ins tall.
He has an average build and shaved light brown or blonde hair.
At the time of the robbery he had a scruffy light coloured beard and he was wearing a grey hooded tracksuit, grey jogging bottoms and trainers.
Anyone with information call PC Bryan Heath, or his colleagues at Colchester CID, on 101.
