We are appealing for witnesses and information including doorbell camera footage after a 13-year-old boy was threatened by a man.
The incident happened at the junction of West Street and Prince of Wales Terrace at around 7.05pm on the evening of Wednesday 27 September.
The schoolboy was riding his bike and was wearing a green fluorescent helmet and black parka coat with a fur trim.
He was approached by a man who is described as wearing a black, padded coat and had ginger hair and a thin moustache.
The man threatened the boy and told him that he had a knife, although he did not produce one.
Officers are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident and to any residents in the area who may have captured the boy, the suspect or the incident on their doorbell cameras.
If you can help, please email [email protected], or contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for PC James Moody 1199.
If you wish to remain anonymous you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Please quote the North Yorkshire Police reference number 12230183731.
