It is reported two men, aged in their 20s, were targeted as they walked in Central Park between 7pm and 7.45pm on Thursday 1 October 2020.
As they approached the skate park a young man, who was part of a group of five to six people, walked up to them and demanded they hand over items in their pockets.
Although no weapon was seen, he is said to have threatened to stab them if they did not comply with the demand.
A pouch of tobacco was then seized from a victim’s hand before the suspect walked away and returned to the group he was in.
The suspect is described as being black and in his late teens.
