We are seeking to identify this male in connection with a robbery in Bristol.

A man and a woman, both in their 20s, were walking home when an unknown man approached them in the Redland Road area between 4.30-6am on Friday 5 May.

The suspect assaulted the pair and unsuccessfully tried to steal a wallet, but made off in the direction of Zetland Road with a grey Nike bag and a Santa Cruz hat.

The male victim sustained a split lip and bruising but neither needed any medical treatment.

Detective Constable Jessica Farrow said: “This was an unprovoked attack on two members of the public, who fortunately did not sustain significant physical injury.
