Robbers terrorise Morecambe couple

Detectives are appealing for information after a young couple were robbed in their flat in Morecambe’s West End.

The incident happened between 4:50am and 5:00am on Sunday June 19 on Yorkshire Street.

The couple were asleep when they heard loud continuous banging on their door.

When the 19-year-old man who lives at the flat opened the door, two men wearing balaclavas pushed their way inside.

In the kitchen area, one of the men grabbed him by the throat and pushed him to the ground whilst the other offender demanded money.

The victim shouted to his girlfriend who handed over some money and jewellery before starting to scream. The two men then fled.

Detective Constable Melanie Caunce said, “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time or who perhaps heard something to come forward and get in touch.

“This was a terrifying ordeal for the young couple and we need to find the people responsible and bring them to justice.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Lancaster police on 01524 63333 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
