He was wearing a blue or grey jacket .
Detective Constable Mike Hayman, based at Oldham, said: “These young victims were walking home when they were confronted by a much older man who blocked their path and threatened them with a knife.
“It must have been a terrifying moment for them as they were on a narrow footbridge and they must have felt very vulnerable.
“They complied with his demands and thankfully neither were hurt.
“I now want people to take a good look at the efit and let us know if you know this man.”
