The victim was walking near to the junction of Hymers Avenue around 5am when has was approached by a man who demanded money from him. 

When the victim said he didn’t have any, the suspect allegedly assaulted him with what’s been described as a blade.

He looked dirty, had long black scruffy hair, a full beard and a distinctive large scar on his right cheek underneath his eye.
