Police are appealing for information after a taxi driver was held at gunpoint and robbed by passengers in Rochdale.
Shortly before 10.20pm on Tuesday 24 April, Greater Manchester Police were called to reports that a man had been threatened with a suspected gun on Langley Lane in Middleton.
Two men held the driver at gunpoint and demanded cash.
The duo stole the 34-year-old man’s wallet before punching him in the head and fleeing in the direction of Heywood Old Road.
The victim was able to drive to safety and raise the alarm.
The offenders have been described as white, in their late teens or early 20s and were wearing grey tracksuits.
Detective Constable Anthony Taylor, of GMP’s Rochdale borough, said: “Whilst the victim wasn’t injured, he has been left extremely shaken after this attack and no-one should ever be made to fear for their life like that.
“The offenders got in that taxi armed and had clearly thought out their attack. Fear and violence will never be tolerated on our streets and we need the public’s help to find these men.”
