|Appeal after burglary at pub-Wigan
Detectives in Wigan are appealing for the public's help to trace burglars
who broke into a pub in Orrell and assaulted the landlord.
The 46 year old landlord was in the bar area of the Stagg Inn pub on Orrell Road at 2.30am today, Thursday 11th August 2005, when he heard a noise.
He went to investigate and discovered 2 men in the office area of the pub. One of the men picked up a hammer, which was in the office, and hit the landlord on the head, leaving him with a head injury.
Both the offenders ran from the pub, where they were met by a third man in the car park. A silver car then pulled up and all three men got into the
car, before it sped off towards Upholland.
The men are described as white, aged approximately 18 years old. One of
them is approximately 6 ' tall and slim, wearing a light coloured beanie
hat and dark trousers.
The second man is described as slim and approximately 5' 7 " tall wearing
dark trousers and a dark long sleeved top.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the CID at Wigan on 0161
