Detectives are calling on the public to help their investigation into a robbery that occurred inside a taxi in Liverpool City Centre.

Authorities have released a CCTV image of an individual believed to be linked to the incident, which took place in the early hours of Sunday 31 March.

The incident happened at approximately 4.45am on Seel Street when a man reportedly forced entry into a taxi, assaulting a female passenger and stealing her handbag. A doorman intervened, removing the man from the vehicle, who then escaped from the scene.

The victim, although physically unharmed, was left considerably distressed by the ordeal. In response to the attack, police officers have carried out extensive CCTV and witness inquiries and are hopeful that the publicised image will prompt information leading to the identification of the man.

Detective Inspector Steve Street said: “Our officers are continuing to investigate this violent and frightening attack which left a woman fearing for her safety after the incident.

“Thankfully another man and door staff bravely intervened and helped the woman after the attack. We are appealing to anyone who helped the victim or recognises this man pictured to come forward and contact us as soon as possible.

“Everyone should be able go out and feel safe in our city without the fear of being attacked and we are determined to find whoever is responsible and bring them to justice.

“We think this man may have vital information to help our enquiries so if you know him please come forward as soon as possible.

“Similarly, If you work in the area where this happened and have any CCTV or dashcam footage from the early morning of Sunday 31 March that captured this incident please contact us so we can continue to investigate."
