Baby was present at terrifying robbery at China Rose in Great Horton Road, Bradford, police reveal

POLICE have revealed a baby was present when masked robbers, armed with machetes and a hammer, held up staff at a Bradford takeaway.
The robbers escaped with money after forcing staff at the China Rose (pictured) in Great Horton Road, Great Horton, to lie on the floor.
After taking money from the till, two of the men ordered the woman owner of the premises upstairs to the residential part of the property, where other money was being stored, while the third man kept guard downstairs.
The armed men entered a room, where the owner's one-year-old baby and its grandmother were asleep, and the owner handed over the cash from the room.
PC Clare Moran, of Bradford District CID, said the baby woke while the robbers were present and began screaming hysterically.
PC Moran said: "It was a prolonged and frightening incident."
