Disabled man, 83, robbed

12 June 2008



Police have appealed for witnesses after an 83-year-old disabled man was robbed while travelling on his disability scooter in Wood Street, Brierfield.

The pensioner suffered palpitations after the robber took his wallet from his back pocket at 1pm on Saturday. He was taken to the Royal Blackburn Hospital and doctors monitored his heart as a precaution and he was discharged the same day.

Police are looking for a 6ft Asian man, of stocky build, wearing black tracksuit bottoms and a grey and white hoodie in connection with the robbery.

Anyone with information should contact the police on 01282 425001 or Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.
