Police investigating a robbery near Stonehouse earlier this year have issued an e-fit image of a man they would like to identify.

It was reported that a woman was walking near to Downton Road between Stanley Downton and Bridgend when she was approached by a man who punched her and tried to take her dog.

The woman was able to stop the man from taking her French bulldog but sustained facial injuries.

The man had a strong Gloucester accent and was wearing green wellies, green waders, a black jacket and khaki hat.

He was walking a brown dog, possibly a Staffordshire bull terrier, at the time of the incident and left through a nearby field.

This took place at around 10am on Tuesday 18 January and officers from the Stroud Neighbourhood Policing Team have conducted a number of enquiries since the incident but are yet to identify the man involved.

Anyone who recognises the man pictured or has information they feel may be relevant is asked to please get in contact.
