A woman suffered hand and stomach injuries when she was attacked and robbed near Sandal Castle in Wakefield.
The 30-year-old was walking past the castle along Manygates Lane when she was set upon by a man who came out of a ginnel leading towards Pugneys Country Park.
He assaulted her before stealing jewellery.
West Yorkshire Police have released an e-fit image of the robber, who was over 6ft tall, skinny and spoke with an Eastern European accent. Officers want to speak to find the driver of a small silver car seen near the scene at the time.
The offence happened shortly after 9.30pm on Friday, 30 June.
Thankfully the victim wasn't seriously injured but nonetheless this incident has understandably left her extremely shaken. She has been able to provide a description of the suspect which has been used to put together an e-fit image. I would urge anyone who believes that they recognise the man pictured to please get in touch.
We are also appealing to anyone who was in the area who may have witnessed any part of this offence to make contact. The victim recalls seeing a small silver vehicle in the area following this incident and it is possible that the driver or any occupants may have seen the suspect before or after this offence.
