TRANSIT Crime Unit detectives are investigating an attempted armed robbery on a 20-year-old man outside the Cheltenham station earlier this month.
As the man got off the train and was walking down the ramp towards Charman Rd he was approached by a man who demanded his wallet, 4am, Sunday 4 September.
The victim refused and the man pulled out a knife – but did not get the man’s wallet. He then got into a taxi and was driven to the Brighton area.
Police have released images of a man they believe can assist with their inquiries. He is of Middle Eastern appearance, aged about 20, 173cm tall and of medium build.
He was wearing a grey hoodie, baseball cap, blue tracksuit pants, blue Asics runners and carrying a black/grey bum bag over his shoulders.
