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.
