POLICE are appealing for information following a burglary at a block of flats in Skelmersdale.

Around 3.50pm on Monday 6 January, a 46 year old man was returning to his flat on Banksbarn when he came across three men on the communal staircase dressed in dark clothing with their faces covered.

When he challenged them as to what they were doing one of them produced a knife and pointed it at the man before leaving.

When the man got to his flat he found the door had been forced open and somebody had been inside, however no property had been taken.

DC Thomas Jay said: “We believe the three men on the staircase may well have been responsible for breaking into the man’s flat and would urge anyone with any information to come forward.

“If you saw anything suspicious, or in particular three men in dark clothing, in the area either prior to or following the burglary then please contact us, you could have information which could help.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
