A man was threatened before being chased for cash in Corby.

The 18-year-old victim withdrew some cash from the Post Office in the Co-op in Alexandra Road, Corby, sometime between 11am and 11.45am on Wednesday, August 15.

As he was leaving the shop, a man asked him for a cigarette and then demanded money from him, threatening him.

The offender was a 6ft 1in white man of medium build with tanned skin, about 20-years-old, with short brown spiked hair and wore a grey jacket with white sleeves.
