Police have released a new image of the man they want to speak with after a woman was threatened with a knife at a Burnley petrol station.

The incident happened at around 6pm on Wednesday when the 22-year-old was filling up her car at Tesco petrol station in Centenary Way.

She went to pay at the cashier before walking back to her car. As she got in the driver’s door, a man, who was in possession of a knife, got into the passenger seat and told her to drive. The victim screamed, got out of the car and ran to the cashier. The man then left the vehicle and made off on foot on Centenary Way.
