Police are appealing for witnesses after an attempted knife-point robbery.

A 48-year-old local man was walking his dog on Saffron Walk in Bourne at 6.45am on October 9 when he was approached by a white youth aged about 17 or 18 years old wearing a black hooded top.

The two were walking towards each other and when they got closer the dog walker saw that the person with the hooded top was holding a knife down by his side.

The youth in the hooded top asked the local man for his phone and money.

The dog walker replied he had neither with him and continued walking towards Woodview in Bourne.

The youth in the hooded top then continued to walk off in the opposite direction.

Detective Constable James Thompson of Grantham CID is investigating the crime.

He would like to hear from anyone who might have seen any suspicious persons or activity in the area.

They should contact Lincolnshire police on 101 quoting incident 50 of the 9th October 2015.
