POLICE are yet to receive a single call from the public to help them find the men who tied up an 87-year-old woman during a terrifying raid on her Great Sutton home.
Detective Constable Henry Platten is urging witnesses to contact with him even if they think the information is not important.
Intruders broke into the property in the Pennington Green area through the kitchen door at about 8pm on Sunday, December 2.
They forced the elderly resident to the floor before tying her feet together with gaffer tape.
During the struggle she managed to press her panic alarm, which she had round her neck, to alert police.
This panicked the men and caused them to flee the scene.
Both are described as being well built, between 5ft 8ins and 6ft tall and wearing dark clothing, which also covered their faces, and dark gloves.
The woman was left shaken but unhurt by the incident.
DC Platten said: “We would ask anyone with information or who may have seen anything unusual or someone acting suspiciously in the area to get in touch with us, however small it might be.”
Following the raid, police said the panic alarm had prevented what could have been an even more serious incident.
More than 1,200 elderly residents in the borough own one of the Lifeline alarms and anyone interested in having one installed should call Social Services on 0151 357 4500.
If you saw anyone acting suspiciously in the Pennington Green area at the time of the raid or have any information call DC Henry Platten on 01244 613165, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
