Information appeal made following series of street robberies


An appeal for information has been made by police following a series of robberies which took place during the early hours of Sunday 19th April, between 12:30am and 3:45am in the Ripon Street, Shelley Rd and Villiers Street areas of Preston. In each robbery two offenders have approached the victims and have demanded property from them.

The offenders were described as being white males and were wearing dark coloured clothing.

DS Andy Dixon of Preston Police said ‘These incidents were extremely frightening for the victims to have gone through and we would appeal for anyone who may have seen anything suspicious to get in touch with us. It may be that people were out returning home themselves and may have seen something that could assist in identifying the persons responsible.’

Anybody who has got any information can get in touch with police on 101 quoting log number 273 of April 19th or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or they can go online at crimestoppers.org.
