‘Blood-curdling’ screams heard as masked gang knife mum, dad and son

A knife-wielding masked gang stormed a home and stabbed a mum, dad and son – prompting a huge scale emergency response.

Neighbours claimed they heard blood-curdling screams for help after the three family members were stabbed at home in Salford, Greater Manchester.

Police and emergency services rushed to the scene with the trio suffering stab wounds and requiring hospital treatment. 

The father has since had surgery on a life-changing injury, police say, with the mother and son later discharged.

Neighbours claimed that they “knew something was seriously wrong” when they heard “screams” coming from the flat.

One resident told Manchester Evening News: “It was so loud I thought it was outside. They were screaming and shouting and a woman was screaming for help from the window.

“There was a car outside that I didn’t realise had anything to do with it. Then, about four to five minutes later, three individuals came running out completely covered up, jumped in the car and sped off.”

An air ambulance arrived at the scene at around 2.30pm on Friday, August 18 however, one of the witnesses claimed that as many as six ambulances and 10 police vans and cars were parked up.

Detective Chief Inspector Yanica Weir said: “This appears to be an isolated, targeted and unprovoked attack, in which three men in masks and balaclavas were seen leaving the address on Velour Close following the attack.
