Police are appealing for information after a woman was robbed in Peterborough.
The woman, who is in her 40s, was followed by a man in the Viersen Platz and Wharf Road area who chased her and threatened her with a knife before stealing her handbag. The incident took place at about 11pm on Saturday, November 26.
The man asked the victim for money and then stole her purse which contained credit cards and cash and ran off in the direction of ASDA.
