A man was walking along a road in Northampton when he was approached by two strangers and threatened with a knife.

Officers at Northamptonshire Police investigating the knife-point robbery in Kingsthorpe have now released CCTV footage of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident.

A man was walking along Mill Lane in Kingsthorpe towards the Cock Hotel when he was approached by two strangers who threatened him with a knife and demanded that he hand over his bank cards and PIN numbers.

The two men then ran away.

The cards stolen from the man’s wallet were later used at the nearby Asda store in Thornton Road, Kingsthorpe, to buy a number of expensive electrical products.

The robbery happened at about 7.30pm on Tuesday, February 3, although details have only just been released to the media.

Officers investigating the robbery would like to speak to the man in the CCTV footage taken from the Asda store to find out if he knows anything about the incident.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: “Officers investigating the robbery would like to speak to the man in the CCTV footage taken from the Asda store to find out if he knows anything about the incident.”
