We have released a CCTV image of a man we would like to speak to in connection with a knifepoint robbery in West Molesey on Saturday evening (6 July).

Police were called around 7.40pm following reports that a taxi driver had been the victim of a knifepoint robbery after collecting two passengers from the Walton-on-Thames area.

The taxi stopped in Grafton Way, West Molesey, and one of the passengers threatened the driver with a knife before forcing him out of the vehicle.
