Chorley Police are appealing for information after a woman was threatened with a knife in a supermarket car park.

Police were called around 10.50pm on October 5 following an incident at Asda in Bolton Street, Chorley.

A 25-year-old woman was in the car park when she witnessed an argument between two men.

The victim approached one of the men and told him to stop and get into his car.

The man then started to verbally abuse the woman before pulling a knife from his car and walking towards her.
