A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: “His teeth are said to be uneven and he has acne scars on his face. He wore tan shorts and a black t-shirt with the name of a band on, although the victim cannot recall which band.”

Police are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch and are asking people to share this appeal, as the man involved may not come from Derbyshire.

He may have complained to friends and family about a pain in his hand.
