Appeal following robbery in Preston

Thursday, November 17, 2022

We are appealing for witnesses after a robbery in Preston.

It was reported the victim - a man in his 50s - was walking near to the playground area in Avenham Park at around 7am on Monday 14th November, when he was approached by a group of 3 or 4 males who stole his mobile phone and slashed him with a blade.

He was treated in hospital for his injuries which aren't thought to be life-threatening.

We want to hear from anyone who was in Avenham Park and the surrounding areas at around 7am on Monday morning. Did you witness anyone acting suspiciously in the area?

If you can help, contact police on 101, quoting the log number 1207 of the 14th November 2022 or email [email protected]
