Police are appealing for more information after an elderly man was the victim of a daytime burglary and sentimental items and cash were ‘stolen’.

The burglary took place at an address on Unsworth Street, Radcliffe, on Wednesday November 22 2023, between 4pm and 4.30pm.

Officers believe that three males are involved after reportedly ‘entering the property uninvited’.

The offenders allegedly used a white caged van, possibly a tipper type, spoke with Irish accents, and were all white males.

Two of the males were young, possibly in their twenties, whilst a third was older, possibly in his fifties.

PC Bateman, from Radcliffe West Neighbourhood Beat Officer said: “We are in the midst of our investigation into this incident.

“This was a daytime burglary of a vulnerable elderly male by three offenders, who entered the property uninvited and stole a quantity of cash and several sentimental items.

“I want to appeal to the community to help us bring the offenders to justice.  

“I believe these offenders have done gardening or clearing work in Radcliffe, and people may know some information about them, based on the description in this appeal.”
