The suspect approached the victim, an 18 year old man from Old Basing, and produced a serrated knife with a black handle.
He asked the victim for money. When he said he didn’t have any cash on him, he was made to empty his pockets on the floor. Nothing was stolen and the victim was able to leave the scene uninjured.
