Machete house raid ordeal

Date published: 18 April 2014

A ROYTON woman was robbed by machete wielding thugs.

Four men knocked on her door in Highfield Drive on Tuesday evening and forced their way in when she opened the door. One had a stick and another was carrying a machete. The four ransacked the house and stole mobile phones, a watch and cash.

One of the offenders was white, 6ft tall, in his 20s and had short brown hair. He was wearing a baseball cap and spoke with a local accent.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to the terrifying crime.

Dete Cons Gulnaz Akhtar, of Oldham Division, said: “This was a terrifying experience and the victim is understandably very shaken.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161-856 8955 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.


I notice the cowardly scum had to gang up four men (armed) to one woman (unarmed) , it says it all really doesn,t it ? Hope they get caught soon and get whats owed them in quadruple .

Its clear the authorities can't prevent this 'home invasion' crime and the police don't seem to be able to catch the offenders. Cons Akhtar states the obvious and no advice forth coming. The vulnerable people of Oldham are very much on their own.

I know this family and they dont deserve this they are hard working people, this acum needs to be caught and dealt with
