Two Haverhill policeman have been awarded for their work that led to the capture of a criminal who robbed a man at knife point.

Agting Sgt Jason Thomas and Pc Alan Janes were both given the Haverhill Policing Award for 2013 at the town force’s annual awards night on December 18.

The response officers got the accolade for their work on the case after the incident on November 6 in which a 19 year old asked a man at Haverhill bus station for a cigarette before brandishing a six inch knife and demanding his phone and money.

He made two attempts to injure the 37 year old man, who escaped after throwing his shopping bag at the teenager.

“The officers did a superb job of gathering all the evidence, speaking to the victim and identifying the man,” said Inspector Peter Ferrie.
