Two women in their 80s have been left "extremely shaken" after a man stole a significant amount of cash, Merseyside Police say.
Detectives are appealing for information following the confrontational burglary at an address on Tintagel Road in Croxteth on Friday afternoon.
– Detective Sergeant Steve Reardon, Merseyside Police
I'd ask anyone who maybe saw men in the area acting suspiciously, to get in contact.
Any information, no matter how small could be vital in tracing the offenders and bringing them to justice.
If you know who may be responsible for the incident, I'd ask you to think how you would feel if this was your mum or grandmother - any information you may have can help us catch these callous people.
The man is thought to have entered the house uninvited claiming to be there to fix a pipe because of a burst.
Officers say the victims were uninjured but left upset by the incident.
The offender is described as being in his 30s with dark hair.
He was wearing a navy blue anorak and blue trousers and is not thought to have had a Liverpool accent.
Anyone with information should contact St Anne Street CID on 0151 777 4035 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
