Merseyside Police is appealing for information following an aggravated burglary in West Derby on Tuesday, 6 February.

At around 6.10pm, it was reported that two males broke into a home off Snowberry Road and threatened a male occupier with a knife.

The males then stole an unknown quantity of cash and a watch before leaving the property.

Thankfully, the victim was unharmed, but he was left extremely distressed by the incident.

An investigation is underway and house-to-house, CCTV and forensic enquiries are being carried out in the local area.

The first suspect is described as a white male, around 5ft 7in tall and was wearing a black jacket with his hood up.

The second male was described as a white male, around 6ft tall, had a stocky build and was also wearing a black jacket with the hood up and a baseball cap.

Detective Sergeant Steve Byrom said, “This was a shocking incident in which a man was threatened during a burglary in his own home.
