Police are appealing for information after a man was assaulted in his own home in Torrisholme, near Morecambe late last month.

Sometime between 9.30pm and 10pm on Wednesday 29th December 2010, a group of six or possibly seven men, one armed with a machete, entered a flat on Lancaster Road. Once inside, the group threatened a man inside the property.

He received a cut to the cheek before he was punched and kicked to the ground. The group then made off from the flat having stolen a mobile phone.

It is not known if they escaped on foot or in a vehicle.

The man was taken to Royal Lancaster Infirmary where he received stitches to the cut on his cheek.

DC Rachel Killinger said: “I would appeal to anybody who has information about this incident to contact police. I would also like to speak with anybody who may have seen a group of men in the Lancaster Road area on the evening of 29th December.

“Unfortunately, the only description we have of the men is that they were dressed all in black and were wearing balaclavas. But if anybody saw any suspicious activity in the area around the time of the assault then I am keen to hear from them.

• Anybody with any information should contact police on 01524 596634 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
