DC Richard Lenton, of Preston CID, said: “This was a shocking incident which occurred in the victim’s home – a place where he was entitled to feel safe. While this sort of incident is rare, we have increased patrols in the area as a precaution.
“We have got a dedicated team working to identify the responsible individuals, and I would ask anyone who was in the area and may have seen anyone acting suspiciously around the time of the offence to get in touch. I would also ask people to check their CCTV and dashcam footage to see if they have captured anything which could assist our enquiries.”
