CCTV appeal following attempted burglary in Thornton Cleveleys

Wednesday, November 10, 2021

Detectives investigating an attempted burglary in Thornton Cleveleys are appealing for information and CCTV footage.

We were called at around 7.30pm on November 2 after a report of a stabbing at an address on Tallington Close.

Two offenders wearing balaclavas and armed with a blade were reported to have entered the property and assaulted the two occupants before running away empty handed.

The injured man and woman, both in their 20s, attended hospital for treatment and were discharged later the same day.

Following a search of the area, two men were subsequently arrested. They have both since been released on police bail.

DCI Jill Johnston of Lancashire Police said: “While two arrests have been made our investigation is still very much ongoing and I would therefore encourage anyone with information to please come forward with anything at all they think could assist with our enquiries.

“We are particularly interested in speaking to anyone with CCTV, ring doorbell or dash cam footage from around the local area to get in touch as this may have captured the offenders running away or any vehicles seen acting suspiciously at around 7.30pm and could therefore contain vital evidence.”

Footage can be uploaded directly here:

Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 quoting log number 1316 of November 2. Independent charity Crimestoppers can also be contacted on 0800 555 111.
