Men armed with gun and knife punch Wallsend victims

Three men in a private garage in Wallsend, North Tyneside, were attacked by hooded robbers who threatened them with a gun and a knife.

The victims were at an address in Rising Sun Cottages when they were targeted on Friday evening.

Two hooded intruders threatened them, then punched them before demanding cash, police said.

The victims were left shaken but with only minor injuries. The offenders eventually ran off empty-handed.
