Detectives investigating an attempted robbery in Brighton have released an e-fit of a man they are seeking in connection with the incident.
A 62-year-old man was sitting reading in his lounge in Manor Way, Whitehawk, when he became aware of someone next to him.
A man was stood by him holding a carving style knife with a black, possibly wooden, handle and an approximately 9in smooth-edged blade.
He pointed the knife at the victim and threatened him, asking where his money was.
The man stood up and hit the suspect, knocking him backwards into the hallway and sustaining a small cut to his hand as he did so.
After a struggle, he managed to push the man out of the front door, which had been open when the man entered, and he left empty-handed.
The suspect is described as white, 23 to 30 years old, 6ft 1in tall, of slim build, with shaven or spikey fair hair.
He was wearing a black waist-length jacket and dark blue trousers.
The incident took place on Wednesday 24 August.
