Police are searching for three men after they tried to drag a woman from her car at knife point in Manchester.
It happened on Thursday 20th September at 3:55pm as the woman was waiting in her car outside a nursery on Tamerton Drive in Cheetham Hill. She had been waiting for her children.
While she was on her phone, three men approached the driver’s door. One of them pulled a red wrench from inside his coat and smashed the window.
A second man had a knife with a 4-inch silver blade and threatened to stab the woman, before reaching inside the car trying to drag her out.
She managed to fight back but a third man then reached inside the car and stole her phone.
They also stole a gold chain that was ripped from around the woman’s neck, before running into a nearby housing estate.
They are described as white males, aged in their mid to late teens. They were all of slim build and were wearing black hooded tops, black trousers and gloves. All had their faces covered.
This was a shocking and violent attack on a woman who was simply waiting to collect her children.
We are following several lines of enquiry in order to trace the offenders and would ask anyone with any information to contact police immediately.
Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 1146 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
