Police have issued a CD-fit picture of a man who threatened two women with a rusty 14in machete in an Eastbourne street.

He told one of the women to hand over her rucksack, saying "I will cut you if you don't" and raising the blade to her throat as she took it off.

He made the other woman hand over her handbag and fled with mobile phones, bank cards and cash.

The attack happened around 10pm on May 21, the night Celtic played Porto in the UEFA Cup final.

A police spokesman said: "If anyone remembers anything suspicious in the area at the time, please contact Sussex Police on 0845 6070999 or Crimestoppers anonymously and free on 0800 555111."

The attacker was in his early to late 30s, about 5ft 9in and of average build. He had dark hair which hung down to his chin and was slightly wet.

He wore a dark brown three-quarter length leather jacket which appeared to be much too big for him.
