OFFICERS in Barnsley have released an e-fit of a man wanted after a woman was reportedly threatened with a knife in Wombwell earlier this month.

At 11pm, on Saturday August 8, a 25-year-old woman was walking along Summer Lane, approaching the junction with Cemetery road, when she was approached by a man - it is alleged that he threatened her with a knife and said ‘get down here or I will stab you’.
