An appeal for information has been launched by police after a man was the victim of a robbery in Morecambe last month.

The 36-year-old man was stood outside a friend’s house on Chatsworth Road when he was approached from behind and hit over the head with a bottle.

He fell to the floor and lost consciousness and when he came round, realised that money had been stolen from his pockets and he went to a local shop for help.

DC Tris Hardwick said, “This was a nasty robbery leaving the victim needing stiches to his face and I am very keen to speak to anyone who may have information that could help.

“As the offenders have approached the victim from behind, there is no description available to us but I would ask anyone who may have been in the area at the time and may have noticed any suspicious activity at all to come forward.”

Information can be passed to police on 101 or to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at

The robbery took place on June 21 at 4pm.
