Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed at knifepoint in Rochester last month.
Between 8pm and 8.30pm on Friday, September 22, a man is alleged to have approached the victim, a man aged in his 40s, outside a bus stop in High Street and offered him a lift home.
The two walked to a supermarket car park in Friary Place, entered a car, and drove to Borstal Road.
Once there the suspect reportedly stopped the vehicle, threatened the victim with a knife and demanded money.
The victim is then alleged to have handed over a quantity of cash and exited the car.
The suspect is described as white-skinned, aged in his 20s or 30s, 5ft 10in, with fair hair, and of a medium build.
He was reported to have worn dark-coloured trousers and a dark-coloured polo top.
The vehicle he was driving is described as a blue-coloured hatchback car with four doors.
