A thug wielding a machete has robbed two debt collectors as they made their rounds.
The masked attacker struck as the man and woman were outside a flat near Park Road in Sale. He demanded money, mobile phones and car keys before running off in the direction of Firs Road.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the theft, which happened at 11.25am on May 29.
Det Con David Wood said:
“It is unthinkable for most people to be confronted by such violence when simply going about their daily job. I would therefore appeal to anyone who might have information about this robbery to come forward. I want to hear from anyone who either witnessed the robbery itself, or perhaps someone saw a man fitting this description hanging around the area. If do you have any information then please call us.”
The attacker was white, 5ft 7, of medium build, and wore black leather gloves, a black hat and a thin cotton scarf over his face.
Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 7652 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
