POLICE have released an E-fit image of a man they want to speak to after an elderly man was injured during a knifepoint robbery at his home.

At 10.40am on Monday, September 3, two men gained entry to a property in Wolsey Street, Radcliffe.

They threatened the occupant – a man aged 70 – with a knife, before stealing £55 and pushing him over, which caused bruising to his hips.

They stole keys to his car parked outside before stealing the car – a black Skoda Citigo registration PF63 CAE.

Both offenders are thought to be aged between 28 and 32.

The first offender is described as 6ft 2ins tall, of stocky build with a light-coloured goatee-style beard. He was dressed in a hooded waterproof black jacket and was wearing dark jeans.

The second offender is described as 5ft 10ins tall and was wearing a grey woollen beanie-style hat and a black waterproof hooded jacket with tight-fitting grey jeans.

The victim’s car is still outstanding.

An E-fit of the first offender has been produced by police.

Sergeant Jeff Lyons of GMP’s Bury Division said: “This was a cowardly robbery during which an elderly member of our community has been injured.

“The robbery has affected him psychologically and he now feels very anxious about noise outside his property.

“It’s shocking that anyone would consider subjecting a vulnerable person to this kind of violence and intimidation.

“We’d urge anyone who recognises the E-fit image, the descriptions, or has any information to contact police immediately.”

Information can be left with police on 0800 856 8292/8174 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
