Can you help police investigating an alleged robbery of a 68-year-old woman trace this couple?
Investigators believe they may have key information about the alleged incident which left the woman suffering a broken wrist.
The 68-year-old told police she was at the junction of New George Street and Armada Way, near the sundial, at around 5.45am on September 10 when she heard a voice behind her shout "I'll have that".

She said her handbag was then roughly grabbed by a man who wrenched hard, knocking her off her feet.
She fell to the ground as the man raced off. The black leather shoulder bag contained a Samsung Galaxy phone valued at around £200 and a set of house keys.
The woman was later treated at Derriford Hospital where she was found to have suffered a broken wrist.
Investigators believe the man spotted on CCTV from a nearby store later the same day, and the woman accompanying him, may hold vital information about the incident.
