A pensioner has been robbed in his own home by two men pretending to be police officers.
The culprits forced their way into the 77-year-old man’s property in Carnoustie, Angus, around 8.45pm on Thursday.
They then threatened the victim and demanded money before making off with a bottle of whisky and a mobile phone.
Detective sergeant Graeme Wishart said: “This was a very frightening experience for anyone to endure and it is vital that we trace the two despicable men who carried out this robbery.”
The elderly man was not physically injured but left extremely upset.
Both culprits were wearing green zipped jackets with a logo on them.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
