This is the man police believe is behind four frightening armed muggings on women in Belsize Park and Hampstead.
Police have released the efit as they continue to hunt for the man who carried out the four attacks in the space of five days last month.
The man, believed to be in his 20s or 30s, used the same terrifying modus operandi in each mugging. He tracked his victims, waited until they were entering residential blocks and then put a gun to their head and demanded money and belongings. None of them were hurt but all were left traumatised.
He struck first on Adelaide Road on Sunday March 14. The following night he targeted women on Lisburne Road and then Chalcot Gardens before the fourth attack on Thursday March 18 at Tudor Close. Police say there have been no more robberies linked to this man since his last attack.
Det Con Michael Johnston, of Camden's Robbery Squad, said: "We are investigating a series of robberies and have released an efit of a man we wish to trace. He is black man aged in his late twenties or early thirties and had a goatee beard. Anyone with information is advised to contact us on the number provided."
Police have also released CCTV images captured before one of the attacks. A massive police operation, including support from armed officers was launched in the days after the muggings.
