Echo: E-fit of suspect E-fit of suspect

DETECTIVES are hunting for this man in connection with a knife-point robbery in Southend.

The victim, a 20-year-old man from the Southend area, was walking along Milton Road into Westcliff Parade, towards the Cliffs Pavilion, when he was approached by a man carrying a knife who put on a balaclava.

The man demanded the victim’s phone but he refused. The victim gave the suspect £10 instead and ran off to get help.

The incident happened at around 1:30pm on Wednesday January 22 and officers have released this e-fit of the suspect.

The man is described as a white man, of slim build, and aged in his late teens to early twenties, and about 5ft 7to 5ft 8ins tall. He had thick bushy eyebrows and grey eyes.

He was clean shaven with a spotty complexion, and wore a dark blue New York Yankees baseball cap. The balaclava he put on was dark blue with a pattern of little crossed guns over it.

Investigating officer, Dc Shelley Utley, said: "If anyone recognises the man in this e-fit I would ask them to contact me as soon as possible. The suspect had quite distinctive bushy eyebrows and the balaclava he had was also quite unique with its pattern of crossed guns. If you can help in any way please get in touch.”

Anyone with information can contact Dc Utley, or her colleagues at Southend, on 101.

Alternatively, they can call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

I'm sick of reading about these dregs mugging off people... Instead it would be nice to read ... 'Robber gets more than he bargained for as victim fights back, leading to immediate arrest and a hefty prison sentence' ... Yeah I know I'm being silly ..

the problem is we rarely seem to have follow ups to the enquiries, and if they are caught...or if indeed they ever actually look like the photo fits!

True...i think the Echo should follow all these up, after all they start the ball rolling and should see it through to the end for its readers benefit and peace of mind.

I'm afraid that it would read " Robber gets more than he bargained for as victim fights back, leading to the victims immediate arrest and a hefty prison sentence for assault and battery, unlawful arrest and infringing the human rights of the assailant"
