A 21-year-old man was threatened and forced to hand over £90 in cash in the early hours of Saturday morning.
At around 5am on the A4260 just north of Adderbury the victim was walking home alone from Banbury town centre towards Adderbury.
As he approached a lay by where bottle banks are situated he saw a group of four males walking towards him. One of the males confronted the victim and told him he had a knife. Fearing for his own safety the victim handed over £90.00 in cash, his bank card and his mobile phone. The four men then ran off together in the direction of Banbury. The male who spoke to the victim is white, about 18–20 years-old, 5ft 8”-5ft 9” tall and of skinny build.
He was wearing a hat and a black baseball cap with a white mark or emblem on the right side. He was also wearing a black hoodie with the hood down, black or very dark navy tracksuit bottoms and a dark grey pair of trainers.
The second male was also white, around 18-20 years old, 5ft 11” tall and of medium build. He was wearing a black woollen beanie hat and a black jacket with no pockets or branding.
The third man was white, a similar age, 5ft 8” tall and of medium build.
He was also wearing a black woollen beanie hat and a black hoodie with no markings.
The last male was again white, a similar age, 5ft 8” tall, of small and skinny build.
