POLICE are renewing their appeal for information after a woman was robbed in Buxton on New Year’s Eve.

A 31-year-old local woman was walking up the steps between Hardwick Street and Hardwick Mount at around 11.25am on Saturday, December 31 2011 when she was approached from behind by a man who threatened her.

She handed over a quantity of cash and the man walked off in the direction of Trinity Passage.

Officers are particularly keen to speak to a woman wearing a red coat who was in the area at the time of the incident.

Anyone with any information on the incident should contact Derbyshire police on 101, the new non-emergency number, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
