Cumbria Robbery Warning

3 posts in this topic

I've been asked by one of our lady members to post the following warning -

"This guy booked well in advance, he appeared quite normal, and phoned/confirmed on the day as requested. There was nothing out of the ordinary about anything. He rang for address and followed my instructions. However instead of looking through my window I went to the door and opened it as he arrived. He rushed in through the door, before I could do anything.

He was about 5 6 or 5 7 tall, medium build and his entire head covered in a black, wool balaclava. He had a kitchen knife in his hand and all I could see were his eyes but I could tell he is white, possibly blue eyes. Wore none-descript, darkish, loosish casual clothing. Accent did not leave an impression so must be northern (I'd remember if anything else). The mouth of the balaclava was sewn/melted together so he might have distinctive teeth. I think he held the knife in his right hand but not sure.

I managed to get him out the house eventually but not before he mentioned he might have to tie me up. He took my phone and as much cash as I could find - which wasn't much, all the time he was saying you must have more - I said I'd not been working and banked everything."

He is using the name "Steve" and the phone number 07503 4150**

This man has been reported to the police, anyone with any further information please feel free to pm myself

or one of the other mods in confidence.
