POLICE are appealing for information after a pensioner was robbed in his home in Langwith Junction.

At about 7.20pm on Saturday a 77-year-old man opened the back door of his house on Ridgeway in the village when he saw someone he thought was his neighbour outside.

He was pushed by a teenage girl and two youths who stole his wallet and ran off with cash.

He wasn’t injured but was very shaken by his experience which only lasted a couple of minutes.

He described the girl as being white, 16 -17-years-old, 5’05” - 5’06”, of slim build, wearing a dark coloured hoodie with a grey knitted woollen scarf around her neck.

One youth was white, of a similar age and slim build to the girl. He was 5’06” - 5’07” and was wearing a black hooded raincoat made of nylon or plastic with hood up and gloves.

The second youth was white, 14 -15-years-old, 5’01” - 5’02”, wearing dark clothing with hood up and gloves.

Anyone who was in the area at the time or who recognises the description of the three suspects should contact DC Russ Garner on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
