Woman threatened by man in street

November 26, 2012, 3:57 pm

A woman was threatened in broad daylight in Oldham.

The 25-year-old was walking on Plum Street at 8.10am on Thursday 22 November 2012, when she became aware that a man was behind her.

As she walked near a grassed pathway, the man demanded she gave him her phone and claimed he had a knife.

She screamed for help before the man ran off, empty handed, in the direction of Larch Street.

The woman was not hurt.

The offender is described as being Asian, in his late 20s/early 30s, 5ft 9in tall, had dark short wavy hair and a beard.  He wore a black Adidas zip up top that had three grey stripes down both sleeves and dark bottoms.

Detective Constable Sam Blackwood from the Volume Crime Team said: “Although no knife was seen, the victim was terrified and did not know whether she would come to any harm.  Fortunately she screamed and the man fled.

“At the time of the crime, there were a number of people in the area and we believe someone saw what happened.  If you did or recognise the description of the offender, then please come forward and speak to us.”
