An elderly woman has had a heart attack after she and her husband were robbed with a machete and a hand gun during a robbery at their Bury home.
The couple, a 72-year-old man and a 78-year-old woman, were at their home on Halvard Avenue when three masked offenders burst in.
Petrified he and his wife would be physically attacked, he told the offenders where he kept some cash, which the gang then found and stole. The 78-year-old woman later suffered a heart attack and remains in hospital for treatment.
Police are now appealing for witnesses.
The first offender is described as a white man wearing a yellow high visibility jacket dark trousers, a balaclava and gloves. The second man with a machete described as a white man was wearing black clothing and balaclava. There was a third male who was in possession of a black hand gun.

"What we are dealing with is an absolutely appalling, violent and utterly senseless attack on an elderly couple in the sanctity of their own home. "The stress and trauma of their horrific ordeal may have triggered the woman's heart attack, and as a result she is being treated in hospital. It would be impossible to put into words just how her husband is feeling right now, having seen his home invaded by masked thieves and his wife so traumatised she sustained a heart attack. "Our thoughts are with him and the rest of his family and we hope his wife will make a good recovery.
