Man tied up and threatened in Cumbria robbery

A GROUP of robbers in balaclavas tied up a man and threatened him during a robbery in Cumbria.

Detectives are investigating the robbery, which happened on Friday.

Police said at 8.45 pm they were called to an address in Station Road, Appleby, to reports of three men entering the property carrying weapons. They tied up the victim, a man aged 61, threatened him and demanded money.

The victim managed to escape and raise the alarm and the offenders fled the scene.

However, he was left very distressed and upset by the ordeal.

All of the offenders were dressed in dark clothing and were wearing balaclavas and gloves at the time.

Detective Chief Inspector Lee Johnson said: “This was a frightening ordeal for the victim and we are making a number of enquiries to establish who was involved.

“We believe the offenders used a green Ford Focus to drive to the location and we would appeal to anyone who has seen this vehicle in the area to get in contact so that we can trace their movements.

“Anyone with any information is asked to contact Carlisle CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
