A PENSIONER was subjected to a 'terrifying ordeal' after four men raided his home before stealing cash.

Detectives say a man broke into a house, on Collins Green Lane in Burtonwood yesterday, Wednesday, at 2pm before letting another three men in through the front door.

They stole a quantity of cash and all fled through the front door.

Cheshire Police are now appealing for anyone who witnessed or has dashcam footage of the men entering or exiting the house or anything suspicious in the area that afternoon to get in touch.

DC Jason Heath said: "Burglary is a serious crime in which people are targeted at the place they should feel most safe – their own home.

"In this instance the homeowner was in the property while it was burgled, with one of the offenders making him sit in a chair while the others searched rooms.

"It was a terrifying ordeal for the vulnerable homeowner that has left him extremely shaken up.

"Enquiries into this incident are ongoing and we are determined to catch the offenders and bring them to justice."

One of the offenders, who spoke with a local accent, is described as white, around 30-years-old and approximately 5ft 9ins tall.

He had an athletic build, was clean shaven and wore a baseball cap and grey pants.

Two of the other men had similar facial features to him but looked younger, possibly in their 20s.

They were both white, around 5ft 10ins tall with average builds and were wearing all black clothes and black baseball caps.

DC Heath added: "If you think you know who you the offenders are or have any other information that may help our investigation, no matter how small, please call Cheshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 33475, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."
