Police are appealing for information after a 67-year-old woman was attacked and burgled at her home in Morecambe.
The incident happened at around 11.45 pm on Tuesday 28th July, when a man broke into the woman’s house on Regent Road. The victim was confronted and assaulted by the man, who demanded money from her before leaving the house with a small amount of cash.
He is described as white, approximately 40 years old with dark stubble and dark hair and an unkempt, scruffy appearance. He is believed to have been wearing dark clothing and was possibly carrying an army-style rucksack and had a bandage on one arm.
DC Tris Hardwick of Morecambe Police said: “The victim has been left extremely shaken as a result of what happened and has also suffered some nasty facial injuries. I would appeal to anyone who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area or with any information that could assist with our investigation to come forward.”
