Men threaten child with knife in Levenshulme robbery

Three men threatened a child with a knife during a robbery at a property in Manchester, police have said.

Officers said the men forced their way into the house on Barlow Road, Levenshulme, at about 19:45 GMT on Friday.

They held a knife to the youngster before using pliers to cut six gold bangles from a 35-year-old woman's arm.

The men, described as white, wearing dark clothing and balaclavas, were then disturbed by a noise and ran away.

Det Con Gareth Croll said it was a "shocking robbery that left the victims terrified and no longer feeling safe in their own home".

"I find it hard to believe that these men did not think twice about threatening a defenceless child to get what they wanted," he said.

"Thankfully no-one was hurt but it has left mental scars."

Police have appealed for any witnesses to come forward.
