Police have released an Evofit after a 54-year-old woman was confronted by an intruder in the middle of the afternoon.
The incident took place at 3.40pm on Monday 20th February, when the woman was ill in bed at her Watling Street Home.
The man knocked on the door of the house and when he got no answer went round the back and entered through an unlocked door.
The owner of the house came downstairs to find the man in her home, and he made off empty handed.
He is described as six foot tall, white, large build, shaved and short black hair, pale complexion and wearing a grey jacket.
DS Mark Riley from Preston Police said: “Fortunately the occupant heard the intruder and nothing was stolen. This is naturally a distressing incident for the victim and I would urge people to take a close look at the Evofit and if anyone thinks they recognise the man I would ask them to contact police.
“I would like to reassure people that burglary levels in Lancashire remain low and an investigation is underway to catch the person responsible.”
Anyone with any information should call Lancashire Police on 101.
