Police are appealing for information after a man armed with a knife pushed his way into a house in Leigh before stealing a quantity of cash.
Officers were called to Fairclough Park Drive, Leigh, to reports of an intruder armed with a knife at about 8am today (15 February 2022).
Once inside, the man threatened a woman and demanded money, before fleeing the scene. No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.
Detective Sergeant Andrew Partington, of Wigan CID, said: "Clearly this is a dangerous individual and we are determined to catch him.
"We are sure someone will have seen something as he arrived in a dark-coloured Audi Q7 and was dressed in a hi-vis orange jacket and trousers."
Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 7094 quoting incident 562 of 15/2/22.
Information can also be reported online or by using the Live Chat function at www.gmp.police.uk.
