Police are appealing for information after an aggravated burglary at a house in Coppull.

At about 8.20pm last night (Tuesday, November 18th) two men broke into a house on Coppull Moor Lane, Coppull.

One of the intruders threatened the elderly home owners, a man and woman in their 90s, and their son, aged 63, with a crowbar and screwdriver and the other searched the house stealing a quantity of cash and pension books.

Thankfully the victims were not hurt but were left extremely shaken by the ordeal.

The offenders are described as a man, about 6ft tall, slim build dressed in all dark clothing. The second man was about 5ft 9ins, stocky build, wearing a black cap and dark/black clothing.

“I would appeal for anyone with information to get in touch with us.”
