Emergency services are currently in attendance at a house in Anfield after a car crashed in to a house.
Shortly before 7pm officers responded to reports that a car had been driven through the garden wall of a house on Attwood Road, but when they arrived they found that the car, a black Audi A5, had embedded in the front wall of the property.
It has been established that the car was stolen in a burglary in Old Swan on Wednesday, 8 September, and it is believed the house was deliberately targeted. A man wearing a baseball cap and dark clothing was seen getting out of the car and running off on to Blessington Road.
Fortunately, none of the adults who were in the house at the time of the incident were injured.
Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service are also in attendance at the scene and a structural assessor will decide if the property is structurally sound and safe.
Chief Inspector Steve Hardy, said: "We believe the car was deliberately driven into the house and are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or who has any information which could help us with our inquiries to come forward. This was a reckless act and we are fortunate that no-one was injured.
"Crime Scene Investigators are currently at the scene and house-to-house inquiries are being carried out. Officers will also be checking CCTV in a bid to identify the person responsible.
"We are also interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen a black Audi A5 parked up in their street, or neighbourhood (which is not normally parked up in the area), between 8 September and today. Information they have could be vital to our investigation."
