Police issue e-fit of suspect after teenager with leukaemia robbed

This is awful :-(

Police investigating the robbery of a teenage boy with leukaemia in Leeds have released an e-fit image of the suspect.
The 17-year-old victim was attacked and robbed at knifepoint at about 5pm on Monday, March 7, as he walked down a ginnel between Dixon Lane and Henry Avenue in Wortley. A gold-coloured iPhone 6 that had been given to him by a children's cancer charity was stolen.

The suspect, who was described as white, aged 19 to 20, slim, about 5ft 11ins tall, with a spotty complexion and a scruffy beard, rode off on a black mountain bike along Henry Avenue towards Kellet Road. He was wearing a black coat with a hood, black tracksuit bottoms and had a black drawstring bag on his back, which had a white Newcastle United logo on it.
Despite an excellent response from the public to our previous appeals for information, we have not yet been able to identify the suspect.
We have worked with the victim to produce an e-fit image and we believe it will be a good likeness of that person. We are asking people to put that image together with the physical description, the Newcastle United bag and the CCTV of him riding off on a bike and contact us if they think they know who it might be.
This was a really frightening experience for the victim who already has enough to cope with and we remain determined to do all we can to find the person responsible.

Lets just hope that catch this scumbag and get the poor lads phone back for him !!
