Sale woman Tasered in own home by raiders, say police

A woman was attacked and Tasered in her home by three masked raiders who broke into the house in the early hours of the morning, police have said.

After forcing their way into the home in Claremont Road, Sale, the armed men went upstairs and threatened her with a machete at about 01:20 GMT last Friday.

Demanding cash, they twice punched their victim - who was in her 30s - in the face before firing the stun gun.

They stole her car keys before driving off, Greater Manchester Police said.

Det Insp Simon Akker said: "This was a terrifying attack which has left the woman utterly traumatised.

"Fortunately, she has not suffered any serious injuries.

"I am appealing to any witnesses, or anyone who believes they have any information about this crime, to please get in touch."
