Re­newed ap­peal to trace knife­man

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing again for in­for­ma­tion to trace a man who they is­sued an e-fit for in con­nec­tion with a strange in­ci­dent in a pub.

Of­fi­cers re­leased the efit of a man they want to speak to in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent at The Park Tav­ern in Park Lane at around 6.45pm on Jan­uary 12.

The man was seen act­ing in an odd man­ner and wit­nesses no­ticed there were AA bat­ter­ies in a plas­tic case around his waist. He was asked to leave the premises but pulled out a knife and threat­ened a cus­tomer be­fore flee­ing at around 8.30pm.

The e-fit at­tracted a lot of in­ter­est and sparked im­i­ta­tions by read­ers who mocked the qual­ity of the im­age. But even with the ex­tra at­ten­tion the man has not been found.

A po­lice spokesman said: “No ar­rests have been made in this case so the in­ci­dent is still open and any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is urged to call Cheshire Po­lice on 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 835 of Jan­uary 12.”

The man is de­scribed as white, around 5’ 9”, in his late 30s, with short black hair, dark beard and slim face. He was wear­ing a black jacket with a grey jumper un­der­neath, blue jeans and train­ers.
