Police investigating a robbery in Manor Park a year ago have released an e-fit image of a suspect as they appeal for information.
A man in his 30s was robbed after two men came to his home to sell him six phones around 6.10pm on October 28 last year.
The victim reported that the men visited his address after the sale was agreed over the phone earlier that day.
When he asked to see the items before handing over any money, one of the men pulled a gun out of his bag and pointed it at the victim, ordering him to hand over the money and threatening to shoot him.
The victim handed over £4,000 in cash and the robbers fled.
