A husband and wife were subjected to a “horrifying ordeal” by three masked and armed men during a street robbery in Hale.

At around 9.30pm last Saturday, October 31st, the couple – who had been dining in a restaurant in Hale – were walking down Ashley Road on to Stamford Road when they were approached by a vehicle close to Springbank Park.

Three masked males, armed with baseballs bats, got out of the vehicle and demanded the couple’s jewellery and watch.

The trio, who were wearing dark clothing and balaclavas, made off with a high value watch and drove off towards Langham Road and Marlborough Road.

Detective Constable Natalie Brine, from GMP’s Trafford CID, said: “This was a horrifying ordeal for a couple who were simply walking down the road.

“Although no one was injured, they were both left understandably shaken.

“Enquiries are on-going but any information the public may have could help us with our investigation.

“Anyone who was walking or driving in the area around these times may have information. Any witnesses are asked to call 0161 856 7752 or email
