By Darren Heath

Police are appealing for witnesses after callous robbers attacked a couple outside their home in Rochdale on Saturday.

The assault occurred on Severn Road in Heywood at about 5.30pm after the husband and wife stepped out of their car onto their driveway.

Both were pushed to the ground by three men dressed in dark clothing and wearing balaclavas – the woman sustained injuries to her head as she fell.

Detective Constable Hannah Greetham, of Rochdale CID, said: “They were subjected to a frightening and violent ordeal at the hands of three masked men.

“Both are very shaken and distressed and just want to see their attackers caught.”

Anyone with information should call Rochdale CID on 0161 856 4646 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
