Elderly man robbed at knifepoint in Blackpool

Do you recognise the men pictured in this image?

Police want to speak to them following a knifepoint robbery at a Blackpool hotel.

It happened at around 2:30am on Friday (March 29th) at a building on Station Road when two hooded men have entered through the basement and gone in to a bedroom of 70-year-old resident.

They have threatened him, demanding money and his car keys. They have then stolen a TV and two laptops, along with a Renault Megane, which was found a short time later on Rossall Road in Cleveleys.

PC Paul O’Keeffe of Blackpool Police said: “This must have been a terrifying experience for the victim, a 70-year-old man, to have been targeted in his own home, the place where he should feel most safe.

“If you think you know who these men are, please make contact with us as soon as possible.”
