Callum Borg, his partner Jessica Glover, both 24, and their two-year-old son were asleep when the thugs broke in on Wednesday morning. Callum locked his partner and child in the bedroom and went into the living room, where he was confronted by a group of four men wielding machetes and axes.  

Callum says his arm was cut during the attack, which saw the men make off with his ten-week-old dog Skylar – a pocket bully.

The man fled from the address in a white BMW.

Police were called and forensics have taken evidence from the flat in Salford, Greater Manchester.

And Manchester Evening News reports Callum has appealed for the safe return of Skylar, offering a reward for her to be left somewhere safe.

It was a very frightening experience

“It was a very frightening experience,” the dad said today.

“They were obviously after my dog.

“We want her back.”

Police continue to investigate the familiy’s ordeal.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Constabulary said: “Police were called just before 4am to an address in Worsley following reports of four men with weapons entering a property, and taking a puppy.

“Officers attended and found the front windows of the property had been smashed, and a 24-year-old man had suffered minor injuries.

“A 10 week old bulldog type puppy had been taken.”

Detective Constable Joseph Morris, from the force’s Salford District, said: “We understand this is a distressing incident for those involved, as well as for the community.

“We are fully investigating the circumstances around what happened.

“I’d like to ask if anyone saw anything, no matter how insignificant, to please contact police via LiveChat on our website www.gmp.police.uk quoting log number 351 of 25/08/2021 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. Thank you.”
