Police are appealing for information after an attempted arson in Tyldesley last week.

Three men left the car and made their way into the front garden of the victim’s home on Beechwood Crescent where they used bricks to break the windows on the ground floor.

The incident happened around 10pm on Wednesday 20th.

The men then threw bottles containing accelerant into the home through these broken windows before damaging the car which was on the driveway.

The men are described as at least 6ft tall and wearing black clothing.

Detective Sergeant Neil Lawless of GMP’s Wigan Borough, said: “The first thing the victim knew about the attack was the bricks being thrown through the window of their family home.

“The damage that could have been caused if the accelerant had been lit, or the bricks had hit the victim or her family, is unthinkable.

“These men need to be found, so I’m asking for anyone who heard something at the time or who saw anything that could help with our enquiries, to get in touch.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101, quoting incident number 2185 of 20/09/17. This can also be done anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
