A MAN was threatened with a six inch knife and had his wallet stolen in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Police said the victim was walking home from Hadden Hill Retail Park towards Didcot when he was stopped under a bridge in Marsh Lane, near Broadway.

The suspect, a white male, approached him holding a kitchen knife which he raised towards the other man's throat and demanded his valuables before running back up the road.

Officers are searching for the man, described as in his twenties, about 5’9” to 5’10” and wearing a black tracksuit with a white logo on the left of the chest.
