ROBBERS made off with a luxury watch after threatening a man at knifepoint in Prestwich this morning.

The man, in his 50s, was parked in Clifton Road car park behind the Natwest bank when a man approached his car window at 10.50am.

The offender then smashed the window before holding a knife to the man’s face and demanding he hand over his watch - a black Cartier worth more than £4,000.

The offender, who is said to have been wearing a khaki coloured tracksuit, then fled in a Black Nissan Micra along with the watch.

Police say the man was not injured, but was left shaken.

Anyone who has any information about the robbery is asked to call police on 0161 856 8172 quoting incident number 666 of 12/03/19.
