Reward offered after Pendleton Court Care Home raid
A reward has been offered after a gang of balaclava-clad thieves raided a care home in Greater Manchester.
More than 50 residents, their families and staff were in Pendleton Court Care Home, Chaseley Road, Salford, when it was raided at 16:00 GMT on Monday.
One of the four men forced a member of staff to put cash and residents' jewellery in a bag while three employees were told to get down on the floor.
No-one was seriously injured.
Police said Crimestoppers would pay up to £3,000 to anyone who has information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the men who carried out the raid.'Disgusting thugs'
The raiders pulled up outside the home in a VW Golf, which was reported stolen from the Salford area earlier this month.
They smashed a magnetic lock at the front of the care home to gain access before bursting into the office.
Det Insp Kenny Blain said: "This is an outrageous attack on a nursing home.
"Clearly a number of people were left very distressed and anxious because of all the loud noises and commotion."
Salford City Mayor Ian Stewart said: "Their right to live and work in peace has been shattered by these disgusting thugs.
"This despicable gang of low life scum must be caught."
