Woman slashed with knife in Denton shop robbery

A woman was slashed in the leg and punched in the face as she and her husband tried to defend their shop in Denton from knife-wielding robbers.

At around 5am on May 30th, two robbers armed with knives went into Stockport Road Newsagents and held a large knife to the shop-keeper’s throat and demanded cash.

His wife broke her ankle during the attack and suffered numerous knife wounds in the two-minute-long scuffle that saw the robbers escape with just £35.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at Hyde on 0161 856 9484 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
