DETECTIVES are appealing for information after a man was stabbed in the leg in his own home in Skelmersdale.

Between 8.20pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday 27 May, two men entered a property on Egerton and stabbed the 27 year old occupant before leaving.

The man was taken to Southport Hospital where he underwent surgery.
