A £2,000 reward has been offered after police named the man they want to speak to in connection with a terrifying knifepoint robbery.
Officers want to speak to 22-year-old Anthony Leeming, from Blackpool, in connection with an incident last month which saw an elderly couple robbed in their own home.
Two men entered the couple’s bungalow, on Blackpool Road, Bispham, and armed themselves with knives before threatening the terrified couple and stealing £1,000 in cash and a Tissot watch.
The reward has been offered by Crimestoppers, and up to £2,000 will be available for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the offence.
The incident took place at around 8.15pm on Wednesday, February 20, and anyone with information can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
