Police are appealing for witnesses and video footage following an armed robbery at an address in Alderley Edge.
At around 12.15am on Sunday 10 September, two men were returning home from a night out when they were approached by two unknown men wearing face coverings and black clothing on Heyes Lane.
The offenders chased the men down the street causing one victim, a 39-year-old man, to fall – he was then hit to the head with a machete. The offenders took the victim’s jewellery that he was wearing before fleeing the scene.
The victim sustained serious facial injuries and a laceration to his head. He remains in hospital and is receiving treatment.
The offenders are described as 6ft tall with slim builds and had local Cheshire/Manchester accents.
Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing and detectives are urging anyone with any information to come forward.
Detective Inspector Victoria Shelton said: “This was a terrifying incident that left both victims extremely shaken up and I would like to reassure residents that we are doing everything we can to establish the identities of those involved so that they can be brought to justice.
“There will be an increased police presence in the area and we would urge anyone with any concerns to speak to an officer.
“As part of the investigation I am keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident and thinks they have witnessed something suspicious, or even may have seen the offenders before or after the robbery.
“The same goes for anyone who thinks they may have CCTV or dashcam footage which may aid our investigation.”
Anyone who has information, CCTV or dash cam footage is asked to contact Cheshire Constabulary online via the website or call 101 quoting IML 1641459.
