Police believe the bike the men used is the same one used in a previous attack in May. The other attacks also involved bikes, but they were not the same ones.

What’s more, the attack occurred in broad daylight, around 2 p.m., while staff were inside.

The store’s general manager, Richard Tropez, told the Manchester Evening News that it was “absolutely terrifying.”

“We’ve been targeted,” he said. “No one else, it’s just us.”

“The attacks are very specific,” said Chief Inspector Steve Wiggins in a statement, “with all five attacks showcasing the same style of offending to one specific shopwith offenders arriving on bikes and causing significant damage. We are keen to find out the motivations behind the attacks which will assist us with tracing those responsible and bringing them to justice.”

Wiggins emphasized that “this cannot continue” and “we are doing everything in our power to investigate the incidents whilst protecting the business.”

Crimestoppers has offered a £2000 ($2500) reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
