Grindon man robbed in his own home

Have your say

A MAN was robbed in his Grindon home after a callous thief ticked his way inside in broad daylight.

The offender preyed on the victim’s kindness when he asked him to fill his water bottle.

Once inside, the offender stole an amount of cash from the victim before riding off on a blue mountain bike.

The man is described as white, about 5.8 tall, and between 30 and 40 years of age.

He had blond hair, was of slim build and was wearing a thin black jacket and dark trousers.

Anyone with information is asked to call Northumbria Police on 101 ext 69191.
