Detectives urge witnesses to come forward after a pensioner was threatened in his own home by armed raiders wearing masks.
Two men broke into the house in Saughall Road, Blacon , about 10.40pm on Wednesday, May 16.
The 65-year-old male occupant was left terrified after being threatened by the intruders who were armed with a knife and a crowbar.
