A computer-generated image of a teenager has been issued by officers investigating a robbery in Herne Bay.
It was reported that between 12.30pm and 1.30pm on Wednesday 17 February 2021, a woman in her fifties was waiting at a bus stop in Fleetwood Avenue, when a boy threatened her and demanded cash.
The victim gave the suspect some change before she was able to flag down a car for assistance.
The suspect reportedly ran away in the direction of The Circus.
He was described as being aged between 12 and 15 years old, five feet tall, with a slim build and dark hair. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top and matching jogging bottoms.
Detectives are appealing for witnesses and, in particular, would like to trace the driver of a car who assisted the victim after the incident.
