We're appealing for information following a robbery which took place in Sidney Street, Salisbury.

Between 1130 pm on Saturday 15 and midnight on Sunday 16 September 2018, the victim was approached by two men, one of whom had a knife and demanded he hand over money.

Both men were wearing dark clothing and had their faces covered. The victim, a 39 year old local man, handed over a small amount of cash but was uninjured in the incident.

DC Andrew Tearle who is leading the investigation said: "I would like to hear from anyone who can help us to identify these men or who potentially may have CCTV or dash cam footage in the area.  Fortunately the victim wasn't hurt but this was a frightening situation and someone will have information which can help us bring these offenders to justice."

Inspector Pete Sparrow said: "Knife crime remains low in Salisbury, despite national trends.  However, this case and our current 'Operation Sceptre - knife crime awareness campaign' highlights that knives are out there and we are committed to take positive and robust action against anyone found carrying or using a weapon on our streets.

"We encourage anyone who has information about knife crimes or suspicions about someone who may be carrying a knife to let us know. Your information may be key to our investigations or even help prevent a knife crime from taking place."

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Andrew Tearle at Salisbury CID quoting ref *87674. Alternatively call Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 anonymously if preferred.
