Six masked men armed with sledgehammers and machetes threatened staff during a terrifying robbery at a B&M store.
An eyewitness reported seeing the robbers with a machete, a hammer and a crowbar during the “vicious” robbery.
According to the eyewitness, one frightened checkout girl was dragged towards the exit of the Swinton, Manchester, shop.
Another eyewitness said: “I was casually shopping at the back of the store, when I heard loud metal bars being bashed and shouting coming from the front of the store.
With the limited Police FORCE we have what hope? these crooks rob a store less than a minute away from the main Police station.
