Taunton Robbery

Avon & Somerset Police want your help with a robbery investigation. The incident happened at about 5.15am on Saturday 2 November in Staplegrove Road, Taunton, near its junction with Chip Lane.

A 45-year-old woman was walking to work when a man threatened her with a screwdriver and demanded her rucksack. There was a struggle and the woman fell to the ground before managing to run away.

A few minutes later the man tried again, while the woman was still in Staplegrove Road. He made off empty-handed through the grounds of Taunton School towards Greenway Road when other people approached.

The victim suffered a bump on the head and grazing when she fell.

Police have issued CCTV images of a man they’d like to trace as part of their investigation.

The suspect was “white, aged 20 to 30, between 5ft 10ins and 5ft tall and slim. He wore a dark-coloured hoodie and trousers.”

If you recognise the person in the image, were in the area at the time, or have any other information which could help the investigation, get in touch with police through or by calling 101, quoting reference 5219253548.
