A man threatened a homeowner with a knife during an attempted robbery in Heald Green.

At around 7.40am on Tuesday 7 January 2014, a 66-year-old man was inside his home on Mendip Close when he heard a smash. He went to check on his wife, thinking she may have fallen, but realised it was not her.

As he walked to the top of the stairs, he was confronted by the offender with a knife.

He made demands before he ran off, empty handed.

The offender is described as being white, in his late teens, 5ft 7in tall, of slim build, was wearing a dark hooded jacket and spoke with a local accent.

Detective Constable Kat Moriarty based at Cheadle Heath Police Station said: “This man was very threatening in his behaviour and thankfully no one was seriously hurt in the incident.

“At this time of day many people would have been getting up or leaving for work and I would ask anyone if they saw a man fitting the description acting in a suspicious manner around the Mendip Close area to phone police.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 9770, 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
