CCTV: we want to speak to these potential witnesses following Burnley robbery

Monday, November 14, 2022

We would like to speak to the men in these images as we believe they may have witnessed a robbery in Burnley.

The incident occurred shortly before 11am on Saturday (November 12th) on the canal above Yorkshire Street, when two men approached a man aged in his 40s and assaulted him before making threats to harm him. 

They then stole the victim’s phone, cigarettes and around £220 in cash and made off in the direction of Thompson Park.

We would now like to speak to the men in the images as part of our enquiries as we believe they may have witnessed the incident. To be clear, they are not suspected of any crime, but are believed to have seen some of what happened.

PC James Inglis, of Burnley Police, said: “The victim was minding his own business when he was assaulted, threatened and then robbed of several items. He has been left understandably shaken by this incident.

“Our enquiries are very much ongoing and we would now like to speak to the men in these images as we believe they may have witnessed some of the incident, or may have seen those responsible.

“If you recognise them, or think this may be you, please get in touch as soon as possible.”

Anybody with information is asked to get in touch on 101, quoting log 499 of November 12th.
