Appeal after man robbed at home in Livingston
Officers in West Lothian are appealing for information after an 82-year-old man was robbed at his home in Livingston.
An unidentified man managed to gain entry to the property on Fells Rigg around 6.45pm on Saturday 6 November before assaulting the occupant and robbing him of a two figure sum of cash.
The man is described as being white, around 5ft 10in tall and of medium build and in his late 20s. He had untidy brown hair, was clean shaven, spoke in a local accent and was wearing a jacket and trousers.
The victim did not require hospital treatment.
DS John Bowerbank said: “This was a reprehensible attack on a man within his own home and we are working to identify the man responsible.
“We would urge anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity or who recognises the man descried to get in touch.
“We would also be keen to speak to anyone who may have dashcam or private CCTV footage from the area.
“Anyone who can help can call 101, quoting incident 3369 of 6 November, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
