We are appealing for the public’s help in identifying the man from the CCTV images, in connection with a knifepoint robbery in Bradfield Close, Woking.

Two female occupants were threatened with a knife during the robbery, which took place at a residential address around 3pm last Wednesday (10 April). Multiple items were taken including a mobile phone, tablet device, a handbag and its contents.

It is believed the suspects left in a taxi which was waiting for them in Guildford Road.

The man is described as Asian, aged in his late teens to early 20’s, approximately 6 ft. tall, of athletic build, and appears to have a dark moustache. As per the image, he is wearing a navy blue fleece zipped top, and dark trousers.

Detective Constable Richard Pegden, who is investigating the incident said: “If you recognise the man from the CCTV images, please come forward. The victims of this robbery have been traumatised by what happened to them that afternoon. They have been unable to sleep or eat since it happened.

“I would like to reassure the wider community in this area, that this is an isolated incident, however, we are keen to identify the man from the CCTV image as he may be able to help with our investigation.

“If you were in the area of Guildford Road and Bradfield Close, between 3pm and 3.10pm, on Wednesday, 10 April, and saw anything suspicious, please also contact us.”
