Carlton-Robbery-Suspect

Police have issued a picture of a man they would like to speak to following a robbery where a woman was tied up in her own home in Carlton.

At around 1pm on Tuesday (October 23) a man barged his way into a property on George Road after a woman answered a knock on her door.

He then dragged her into the lounge and tied her hands with cable ties, demanding that she did as he said or she would be hurt as he had a knife in his pocket.

A police spokesman said: “No knife was seen during the incident. The victim was left shaken but was unhurt.

“The offender is white, believed to be in his 40s and is about 5ft 5ins tall. He is of large build and had a shaved or bald head. He was wearing a dark North Face zip-up jacket without a hood, dark trousers and dark trainers.

They added: “If you recognise the man pictured or think you can help, please call us.”
