Pensioner Attacked

Police are hunting for two teenagers who robbed a pensioner of £50 after stabbing him with a Stanley knife. The 68 year old man was only slightly injured but suffered severe shock. The pensioner, who is nearly blind,  was on his way to the shops in Watchouse Road when the youths approached and threatened him. One produced a knife, and in a brief struggle, they stole £50 and rode away on bicycles. They are described as between 15 and 17.
