Detectives have launched a hunt for a man after a man was robbed in his own home.

The 33-year-old victim had answered the door at his home on Squireswood in Fulwood, Preston, at around 8.20pm on Monday, May 19 when criminals burst in.

Three men are understood to have barged into the property.

One was armed with a knife and screwdriver.

Police believe one of the men kept watch, while the other two searched the house.

They made off with cash and a watch.

Officers are now hunting Usman Sajid, whose last known address is the Cromford Walk area of Plungington, Preston, in connection with the probe.

The 34-year-old is wanted on suspicion of robbery.

The force has today released an image of him in the hope the public will recognise him.

He is described as being of Asian appearance, with a shaven head and brown eyes.

Sajid is thought to be of small build.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call Preston Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
