The incident occurred between 6.45pm and 7.15pm on Saturday 7th December when a woman left the Costcutter shop on Skipton Road, Harrogate and walked down the alleyway at the side of the shop near Jenny’s Fish and Chips. A man threatened her with a machete and took cash from her, before leaving the scene.  The woman was uninjured.

The man is described as white with dark hair and wearing a dark, sky blue jacket and dark trousers. The victim is 5ft 1  (1.55 m)with long blonde hair and was wearing sandy coloured trousers with the braces hanging down and a black jacket with a fur hood.
