A number of luxury watches have been stolen from a man in his 70’s after he was assaulted in his own home.
Police are now looking for information on two offenders thought to be between 20-25 years old.
The incident took place on the 1st December when two people forced their way into a home on Garstang Road West in Poulton.
The offenders assaulted the victim before stealing a number of expensive watches including a Rolex and an Omega.
The two offenders are described as being white, 20-25 years old, between 5ft 7in and 5ft 9in tall. They were wearing all dark clothing. One of the offenders is said to be taller and bigger in build than the other.
DC Adam Townsend of West CID, said, “This is an absolutely despicable crime which has understandably left the victim very upset. Although expensive, the watches hold sentimental value too which makes it all the more distressing.
“We need to locate the stolen watches and find the people responsible. Do you recognise the watches in the pictures? If you have been approached by anyone trying to sell something like this, please let us know as soon as possible.
“Likewise, if you saw anybody acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the burglary, or have any relevant CCTV footage, we need to hear from you.”
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting log number 1263 of 1 December.
