Police in Sheffield have released CCTV footage of a man they would like to identify as part of their investigation into an attempted robbery on a forecourt.

At around 3.10am on Saturday 30 July, a 45-year-old man was at the Norwood BP service station on Herries Road fuelling his car when a man approached him and demanded he hand over his car keys.

The suspect is believed to have shown the victim a knife hidden in his waistband, before demanding the keys a second time. The car owner walked to the night hatch of the service station, at which point the suspect fled in the direction of Hillsborough stadium.

Officers believe the man shown in the footage could help with their enquiries and are appealing for him, or anyone who recognises him, to get in touch.
