Residents urged to be on their guard after bogus callers injure Lichfield woman

The granddaughter of an 88-year-old Lichfield woman who was injured when bogus callers forced their way into her home have warned others to be on their guard.

The incident, which happened in the Redlock Field area of Lichfield shortly after 8pm on Monday (8 March), left the woman with injuries to her arm.

And now her granddaughter has told The Lichfield Blog that other residents need to remember not to let anyone into their homes.

She said:

“She fought back and fortunately is ok, just bruised and shocked. Please warn all old people not to let anyone in.”

The men were both white, one was around 20 years old and the other younger, around 16 years old. The older male was of stocky build with short fairish hair and wearing a blue jacket. The younger male had short, dark hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Kiley Round at Tamworth CID on 0300 123 44 55 or, call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
