An armed gang has held up security staff as they collected cash from a KFC restaurant in Manchester.
The three men, one of whom was armed with a machete, waited outside the KFC on Chester Road, Stretford, in a stolen van before they struck on Friday night, according to the BBC.
Det Con Emma Bushell said the raid was well-planned: "They will no doubt have talked about their plans or perhaps bragged about what they have done so if anyone has information I would urge them to get in touch - we will treat all information in strict confidence.
"The van was stolen days before, it was parked up for some time before the robbery and then abandoned.
"I would therefore urge anyone with information about where this vehicle has been or who has been using it to call police."
The van is described as a people carrier with windows down the side.
It was stolen in a burglary in Trafford Park days earlier and was found abandoned on Summerseat Close, Ordsall.
