Knife attack horror

Date published: 10 June 2014

POLICE launched a manhunt after a terrified resident was robbed at knifepoint at his secluded Saddleworth home.

Two men forced their way into the house at Ryfields Drive, a private road in Uppermill, around noon on Sunday. They stole the 43-year-old resident’s black Volvo C30 car keys and tablet computer before driving off in the car.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “Thankfully the victim wasn’t seriously injured, but we are treating this as a serious crime.”

The first suspect is described as square-faced, in his early 30s, around 6ft 2in tall, of athletic build with dark hair. He wore a dark-coloured hooded top and jeans. The second man is in his late 30s, around 5ft 10in tall, medium build, with collar-length mousey-coloured hair and a wide jaw-line. He wore a dark bomber jacket and trousers.

Inspector Muz Kernain, of the Borough Integrated Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This type of crime is rare. We ask the public to report any suspicious activity to the police immediately.”

Anyone with information should call 0161-856 8825 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800-555 111.

When they catch them they should be flogged publicly .

Yet another home invasion, and no answers to this epidemic.what is quite amazing is that inspector Kernain says 'this type of crime is rare'. I am speechless, read the Chron, this type of crime is rampant.
