A MAN was left shaken after being robbed at knife-point by a teenager in Worthing.

The 23-year-old victim was approached at about 11.45pm on Monday as he walked east along Rowlands Road.

Police said the robber shouted “give me your valuables or you’re going to get one” and produced a flick-knife.

The victim handed over his wallet and mobile phone before the offender ran off in the direction of the seafront.

Detective Constable Beccy Hopkins, from West Sussex CID, said: “This was a nasty incident and the victim is understandably shaken by the ordeal. It is important the offender is identified and brought to justice.”

The suspect is described as white, 5ft 9in and aged 15 to 16. He was wearing dark trousers with a stripe down the leg, a baggy hooded top with a large open pocket on the front, a red baseball cap and a white or cream scarf over his face.
