PC Dan Holmes, of Blackpool Police, said: “This is a serious incident where a man has been attacked and robbed inside his own home.

Police are now appealing for information from the public.

“Given the nature of the robbery, including a dog being briefly stolen, we are keen to identify those involved and believe someone in the community knows who they are.

“I would encourage anyone with information to contact us.”
