[Editor’s note: This is a separate incident from that reported yesterday.]

Merseyside Police detectives are issuing CCTV footage of two men we wish to speak to in connection with a burglary in Rainhill on Thursday, 22 June.

At around 4.25pm, two men were seen running from an address on View Road, Rainhill with suspected stolen property.

A member of the public gave chase and saw the men climb over the wall of Rainhill Railway Station.

The first man described is white, around 5ft 8in tall, mid 20s, of medium build, wearing a black jacket with red writing on the shoulder saying ‘Superdry’, black bottoms and blue trainers. He has a shaven head, on top of which he was wearing sunglasses, and was carrying what appeared to be a black backpack.

The second man is described as white, around 6ft tall, mid to late 20s, wearing a grey two-tone jumper with ‘MCK’ on the front, grey tracksuit bottoms, and carrying a green jacket over his arm. He has a shaven head or closely cropped stubble length hair which appeared grey and black. He was holding a light coloured bag.

Detective Constable Roy Waller said: “A laptop was stolen from the house and I would appeal anyone who recognises these men to get in touch as we need to speak to them.

“If you saw anyone acting suspiciously in View Road around 4pm, or men running off towards the station, please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives on (0151) 7776802, call 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
