The suspect pushed past the man and entered the address where it is alleged he threatened the householder with the weapon before making demands for property from the victim.
The thief then made off on foot with the victims wallet and contents and a Blackberry mobile telephone.
The 70-year-old man sustained cuts to his hand and a cut and bump to the forehead and he received treatment at hospital for these injuries.
Detective Sergeant Dave PATTISON from Grimsby CID, said: “This was a particularly unpleasant offence involving a vulnerable member of our community. Incidents such as this do not happen frequently thankfully but when they do they are very disturbing and it is important that we trace those responsible and bring them to justice.
“The CCTV footage shows two separate people attending at the address and we would like to identify both the man and the woman in the hope they may be able to assist with the investigation.”
Anyone who recognises either of the people shown is asked to contact Humberside Police on the non emergency number 101 referring to crime number 1950595 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
