Police are searching for a man who threatened to rob two people on the Alban Way in St Albans.
A man threatened another man and demanded he give him his wallet on the Alban Way by Berners Drive on Tuesday, May 7.
In the same place, on Sunday, May 12, the same man aggressively demanded a woman give him her bag.
The culprit is described as skinny, aged in his 20s and wearing dark clothing.
