A teenager used a blade to threaten a man during an early-morning street robbery in Rugby last week.

At around 6.15am on Thursday, September 12, a man in his 40s was walking on Murray Road when he passed two other men talking outside a house.

As he walked further down the road, one of the men approached him and threatened him, while holding a blade.

There were no reported injuries.

The suspect is described as a white male, around 16 years old and approximately 6ft tall.

He was wearing a grey tracksuit, black trainers and a baseball cap.
