Student robbed by gunman in his Manchester home

A student was robbed at gunpoint in his home in Manchester, police have said.

The 25-year-old was confronted by a man carrying a handgun at his home in Claremont Road, Moss Side at about 0200 GMT on Wednesday.

The gunman ordered the student to put his hands up and go into a bedroom before stealing three laptops and a wallet.

The robber was described as black, 23 to 28, 5ft 10in (1.8m), and of medium build. He was wearing dark clothes.

He also had a hood up and his face covered.

Det Con Darren Evans, of Greater Manchester Police, said: "We are determined to catch the person responsible for this robbery - we want to see them brought to justice and have that firearm taken off the streets so it can't frighten or injure anyone else.

"If you saw or know something about this or are offered any computer equipment that arouses your suspicion, please contact us."
