The victim was walking his dog along the redway when a man came out of the bushes and demanded his phone, but was scared off by the dog.
The offender is white, around 5ft 10ins tall, of a slim build, with dark stubble. He was wearing a plain red hooded top with the hood up and a grey zip, dark navy blue jogging bottoms and white airmax trainers.
