Man threatened with knife at Lincolnshire home

A man has been threatened by two men with a knife at his Lincolnshire home.

The victim, described by police as elderly, answered the door of the property on Wygate Road, Spalding, on Sunday evening.

He was confronted by the armed strangers and fell to the floor but managed to kick the door closed. The men then left.

Detectives have appealed for anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area on Sunday to get in touch.

One of the offenders was described as white, about 5ft 5in (1.65m) tall with a dark complexion. He wore a dark brown hooded top, with the hood up. He was holding the knife.

The other man was taller than the first and wore a light grey hooded top with the hood up.

Police said the victim was not seriously injured but had been left very frightened.
