The brothers of two England footballers were at a restaurant when it was raided by armed robbers, it has been reported.
Dane Rashford and Tyler Alexander-Arnold were at the Littlerock cafe in the Moss Side area of Manchester on the morning of Saturday 12 January. It was then when three men armed with a suspected shotgun, machete and baseball bat swooped on the premises, according to the Mail Online.
The robbers stole a white Range Rover, which was later found abandoned around two miles away in Fallowfield.
Two guns were found in a nearby bush and seized by police as part of their investigation.
Three people suffered minor injuries during the incident, although it is not clear if Mr Rashford or Mr Alexander-Arnold were among them.
Their brothers are Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford and Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) arrested six people – four men aged 18, 19, 23 and 58 and two teenagers aged 17 – on suspicion of robbery.
A post on Littlerock’s Facebook page said staff and customers had been left “traumatised” by the incident.
“We send our deepest sympathies to the customers that got injured in the incident that took place, we hope they have a speedy recovery.
“From the Littlerock staff, we thank you for supporting us through this difficult time.”
GMP Superintendent Mark Dexter said: “Thankfully no-one was seriously injured, but the victims have been left understandably shaken following this incident.
“It is thanks to the swift action of our officers that we now have six men in custody, but this investigation is still very much ongoing, and officers will be in the area continuing with inquiries.”
