Police are still hunting a man who used a hammer and knife to carry out four robberies in the space of just two weeks.

Officers said they are “determined” to bring the raider to justice after he subjected his victims to terrifying threats.

The robber targeted a man with a knife on Mansfield Road on April 1 as well as striking at the Subway on Westcliffe Drive twice and a Bargain Booze on Talbot Road between Friday and Sunday.
