CCTV of terrifying moment robber threatens woman with machete

3 masked men came into the store in Clayton shortly before closing time and while one stayed next to the door to keep guard, the other 2 men, one armed with a machete and the other with a hammer, ran into the restaurant.

It happened on Tuesday 5 November 2013 at the Subway store on Ashton New Road.

Two of the men surrounded the 25-year-old woman and demanded she give them cash or they would hurt her. One of the men raised the machete above his head towards her as he shouted at her.

The offenders stole cash before running out of the shop towards Seymour Road South.
