Masked men rob couple

MASKED men threatened the occupants of a Heysham home with a machete before making off with a large quantity of cash.

Four men wearing dark clothing and balaclavas forced their way into the couple’s house in Robin Crescent at around 11pm on Sunday, May 22.

The men, two of whom are described as having Liverpool accents, also made off with mobile phones before running from the premises on to Mossgate Park towards Middleton Road.

Sgt Colin Forsyth from Lancaster Police said: “This is a very serious offence where thankfully no one was seriously injured.

“I would urge anybody with any information about the identity of the offenders or information about any people or cars acting suspiciously on Windermere Park Estate to contact police.

“I’d also ask people to report anybody who may have recently obtained a large amount of cash.”
